What does it mean to embrace equity, diversity and inclusion? With #EmbraceEquity as this year’s theme for International Women’s Day, we asked women from various industries to share their thoughts on what true inclusion and equitable action means.
These women are also featured in an upcoming new book by the EtonHouse Community Fund (ECF), an IPC Charity under the EtonHouse Group. The book, which commemorates IWD 2023, is a celebration of the achievements and contributions of top Singapore female entrepreneurs who have broken the glass ceiling with their dedication and tenacity. Titled Lifting Half the Sky, the women in the book are from a wide variety of industries, such as sustainability, tech, healthcare, construction, and education, to name a few and share with us their journeys that demonstrate a whole lot of dedication and tenacity.
Here, some of these inspiring women share their thoughts on equity, diversity and inclusion in their individual fields.
