The Singapore Women’s Weekly’s Great Women Of Our Time Awards initiative was started in 2005, as we wanted to create a platform to celebrate high-achieving, successful, inspiring working women.
This year marks the 11th year of the Awards and we wanted to take things up a notch – yet all the while being motivated by the idea of Giving Back. So this year, besides the awards presentation, we decided to stage several different events that would allow us to give back – to both our readers and to society.
The first is the Great Women Of Our Time Supper Club, which was held at the beautiful Aura restaurant at the National Gallery on July 28, 2016. It was indeed the perfect setting for such a wonderful, meaningful event. We worked closely with Great Women Of Our Time 2008 nominee Dr Ann Tan for the intimate fundraiser, with proceeds going to the Halogen Foundation Singapore. The Weekly believes in empowering women and the Great Women Of Our Time Awards showcases strong, bold, big-hearted women with a can-do attitude. And being able to play a small part in helping young leaders develop that same can-do attitude through the Halogen Foundation is something we are very proud of.
The second will be the Great Women Of Our Time Forum which will be held on September 3, 2016 – if you’re a working woman, you have to sign up for it! We have a panel of outstanding women who will share their experiences and life lessons with you. Learn more about the forum here.
