DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

The Chamber champions best practice in diversity and inclusion, hosting events, publishing content and creating new opportunities to reach into the wider Singaporean community with these messages. We are committed to providing support, guidance and activities for those willing to get involved in the conversation. Look out for more news and opportunities to participate here. We encourage everyone, within and outside of our membership, to share their latest reports and progress with us for the benefit of all to learn from. Contact lucy@britcham.org.sg with your updates. 

The Chamber operates both a Women in Business and a Diversity and Inclusion committee, providing numerous opportunities for our member companies and diversity advocates to host, speak at and attend events in topics including gender, disability, age, sexual orientation, race, culture, and religious beliefs. These are sensitive topics and the Chamber along with our contributing member companies and our Diversity and Inclusion Partner, Barclays, handle the issues sensitively and positively.
