SINGAPORE, 1 MAY 2019 — According to Randstad Sourceright’s 2019 Talent Trends research, the majority of employers in Asia Pacific see the value of diversity and inclusion in the workplace.

Featuring expertise from Collier, Siew Choo Soh of DBS Bank and Dr. Jaclyn Lee of the Singapore University of Technology and Design, this panel will explore how HR leaders can boost women’s participation in the STEM fields to address both skills shortages and workforce gender inequality. Attendees will learn how STEM studies can ensure lasting career for women, especially in leadership roles. This session takes place on Wednesday, May 8 at 9:45 a.m.

“Climbing the Leadership Ladder”

Passionate about creating environments which nurture diversity, Collier will share her personal leadership journey and insights on the role of formal and informal mentorship in leadership development for women.
