What Does “Diversity” Mean in Your Workplace?
Diversity has been proven to bring about tangible and far-reaching benefits in the workplace. However, some groups of people still find it hard to be gainfully employed in certain sectors, even in spite of their professional merits. Hence at this panel, we hope to facilitate a discussion amongst different companies for students to learn more about how different company supports diversity practices (whether through hiring or work culture).Through this event, we hope to create a platform between our students and companies (finance, e-commerce, and arts) to engage in meaningful conversations on building a more inclusive and diversified workplace, dedicated to harnessing the talents of people from diverse backgrounds for a more robust work culture.

Please join us for an evening with Tan Heng Yeng (Class of 2018, Senior Executive (Community and Access) National Gallery Singapore), Geetanjali Aggarwal Bhalotia (Data Manager – Singapore/Australia/India, Bloomberg LP) and Deborah Ng (Senior Recruiter, Leadership Hiring, Shopee). We hope to facilitate a session of learning about diversity in the workplace from these three individuals in their respective roles within different sectors.
