Empowering our Women through Diversed Partnerships
In today’s world, businesses now know the importance of empowering women at work. The benefits are well documented and include driving innovation and boosting the corporation’s profits.
Increasingly, companies are studying their policies regarding women empowerment to strengthen female leadership and direct the conversation. Partnerships with such organisations are crucial in not only in amplifying the work that YWLC is doing, but also in creating better and useful content for members through their deep and diverse expertise.
Through our partnerships, we have successfully kicked off several meaningful events such as:
YWLC X Visa: Designing Your Career, where the Visa team led a training session to empower members with tips on navigating their careers
YWLC x Mercer: A Self Advocacy workshop and panel discussion on advocating for yourself as well as others.
Here is what Mercer and Visa has to say about their collaboration with us:
“At Mercer we believe in creating inclusive work environments, and this includes reducing barriers to women reaching their full potential. It was therefore great to partner with YWLC, to empower their members to understand key ways to ensure they self-advocate in their current and future workplaces, sharing tools and best practice from experienced leaders. YWLC provided us with a platform to guide & influence Singapore’s future women leaders, something we are greatly passionate about.”
“The Visa Women’s Network partnered with YWLC in August 2019 to host a career management workshop for YWLC’s member base and Visa employees. This was one of our first external collaborations and YWLC was nothing short of professional – driving end-to-end planning and execution.”
Know of any organisation that might want to collaborate with YWLC to co-create content for the young women in our community? Feel free to reach out to the team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
