Launch of Women On Board Book and the ASEAN CG Scorecard

Launch of Women On Board Book and the ASEAN CG Scorecard

The Singapore Institute of Directors (SID) is pleased to invite you to the launch of a new book on board diversity and the ASEAN Corporate Governance Scorecard 2018.

SID, in collaboration with BoardAgender and with the support of Accenture, is pleased to produce the publication Women on Board: Making a Real Difference.

The book features 24 female directors and highlights their directorship journeys. Cutting across age, race, profession and background, the profiles of these exceptional women will inspire readers and debunk the notion of the corporate boardroom as dull and colourless. Politically engaged, socially resilient and acutely attuned to the changes around them, women in boardrooms are making their mark. As diversity is pushed to the forefront, this publication provides thought leadership on women directorships around 12 boardroom themes such as business models, digital economy and risk management.

SID is also pleased to partner with the Centre for Governance, Institutions and Organisations (CGIO) at the NUS Business School to present the report of the ASEAN Corporate Governance Scorecard 2018, and results for the top 100 listed companies in Singapore according to the Scorecard.

Good corporate governance involves a broad spectrum of policies and measures for the board of directors. A diverse panel of leading practitioners and experts in the field will discuss critical questions relating to excellence in corporate governance excellence for corporate leaders:

  • How will the current enhancements in regulations and guidance, particularly the pending revisions to the Code of Corporate Governance, impact boards and their governance?
  • How should corporate leadership put in place the best practices embedded in the various components of the ASEAN Corporate Governance Scorecard?
  • How can companies leverage on the inherent merits of diversity in leadership, particularly gender diversity, to elevate boardroom decision making?
  • How should leaders balance the need for market growth with the imperative of governance controls, especially in relation to business integrity? 

Our guest of honor for the event is Ms. Grace Fu, Minister for Culture, Community and Youth.

Attendees can expect to gain insights from the distinguished set of speakers and panellists on results of the Scorecard and how companies can leverage on the Scorecard, along with board diversity, to maximise their performance.

(All participants will receive a complimentary copy of Women on Board: Making a Real Difference)
