To celebrate two decades of empowerment and our 20th Anniversary, The Weekly in partnership with PANDORA, zooms in on 20 fierce, focused and forward-looking women who and inspiring and encouraging others to reach their full potential. Welcome to 2020 Vision!
According to the ‘Women In The Boardroom’ report released by consultancy firm Deloitte, Singaporean women held on to only 10.7 per cent of board seats last year. The YWLC aims to boost these statistics and make it easier for us to clinch senior roles in the corporate world.
Lynn explains what drew her to the organisation. “I had a friend who was actively involved in YWLC activities already so when I saw her pictures on Facebook, I went ‘Wow! What is this?’” she recalls.
“I went to their website and came across the Mentorship programme and thought ‘No other organisation could give you such open access to women at such high-levels of leadership.’ So I signed up immediately.”
That was in 2014. Fast forward three years and the current YWLC Chairman is looking to pay it forward. “More and more young women are looking to sharpen their skills, expand their professional network and give back to the community as well,” she says.
“I want to help them do that like my mentors helped me so for our 10th Anniversary next year, we’ll be introducing a series of new programmes and initiatives that will support women in their career and personal development.”
It’s wonderful being a woman because… we can stand up for what we want without being held back by society’s preconceptions.
Lynn took part in a photoshoot with us to showcase some of PANDORA’s latest offerings. Scroll through the gallery below to see what she’s wearing:
