About The Event

This workshop is open to all female STEM professionals and graduates currently residing or working in Singapore.


Recruitment, promotion and retention of female faculty and staff scientists are key to elevating more women leaders in science. Through this two-day intensive in-person leadership program, we aim to address the gender gap in science and equip women with the skills required for professional development and success.
