“While some boards may be hesitant of appointing candidates without board experience, changes in consumer behaviours and business models in a post-pandemic world requires board members with the “current” relevant know-how. Their expertise could bring added value to boards’ deliberations. We hope that organisations – including companies and statutory boards – will seek out women talents and give them equal opportunity to take the first step onto a board. When all organisations keep an open mind and appoint such qualified women onto the boards, it expands the pool of candidates for the entire country.”
