Individuals and businesses who champion a more gender-equal workplace and society were recognised at the Singapore Committee for UN Women’s annual HeForShe Impact Awards luncheon. Georgette Tan, the committee’s President, and European Union Ambassador to Singapore Barbara Plinkert together presented the HeForShe@Work award to two companies, Blackrock and AXA; the HeForShe Leader award to Sumit Behl, Chief Financial Officer of Aviva Singapore; and the HeForShe Influencer award to Christine Rumble, Chief Talent and Culture Officer at AccorHotels Asia Pacific. Another highlight of the afternoon was the fireside chat with guest of honour Ho Kwon Ping, Executive Chairman of Banyan Tree Holdings, moderated by news anchor and TV host Haslinda Amin. Ho shared his no-holds- barred views on why gender diversity and equality is crucial in today’s workplace during the conversation, which was live-streamed and can still be viewed on the Singapore Committee for UN Women’s Facebook page.
