BERG Singapore honours 12 women at the 3rd Women Icons Asia event

The Business Excellence & Research Group honoured 12 outstanding women achievers from across the region at the 3rd Women Icons Asia Summit & Awards 2019. The glittering awards function was held at the Regent Hotel in Singapore on May 31, 2019, in the presence of over 150 guests.

The Awards function was preceded by an hour-long panel discussion on the issue of “Achieving Gender Diversity: Is enough being done to create a robust talent pipeline”. The insightful panel comprised Victoria Murphy, VP, Randstand Sourceright; Kathryn Woof, MD, 33 Talent; Tirupathi Karthik, CEO of Napier Healthcare; Christina Teo, Chief Builder- She1K; and Beena Natarajan, Head of Talent & Vibe at Zeemart Singapore.

One thing the panel agreed on was that a lot still needs to be done to achieve the level of gender diversity that is desirable, and a lot of this has to start from the home and in the workplace, right from the top. The panel discussion was moderated by Vishwesh Iyer, Founder & Managing Partner of BERG, who made an impassioned plea for the measurement of gender diversity in organisations in his introduction to the panel discussion.
