Diversity Action Committee (DAC) presented its report ‘Women on Boards: Tackling the Issue’ to Mr Tan Chuan-Jin, Minister for Social and Family Development, who was the Guest-of-Honour at the launch event.
The two-part report discusses obstacles to having more women directors on boards of SGX-listed companies and made 5 recommendations to Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), listed companies and the overall market.
The supplement to the report features conversations with chairmen and board directors from companies that have achieved awards for good corporate governance practices – DBS, SIA, Singtel, Yoma Strategic and Micro-Mechanics – on the topic of gender diversity on boards.
