Volunteers are at the heart of everything we do at KeyNote Women Speakers Directory; ours is a community built by volunteers.

Equity In Action owes its success to all the volunteers who came together to share their time and talents to make this event come to life. From event strategy to marketing and event management to event day operations, our volunteers contributed their time, skills, energy and enthusiasm to make this marquee event happen.

The volunteer experience at KeyNote events such as Equity In Action supports people to develop new skills as well as discover existing aptitudes; and this personal development is central to our mission of enabling #diversity, #equity & #inclusion.

In 10 days, KeyNote Women Speakers DIrectory goes live with one of the most talked about, must-watch DE&I events of the year!

We forged some incredible partnerships this year with a remarkable set of organisations and individuals, who support and celebrate our mission to bring diversity to stages and screens globally. 7 of our event partners are businesses based out of Singapore, and we are thrilled that more than 5 of these businesses are women-led.

EQUITY IN ACTION looks into rebuilding with Equity across all aspects of our lives. We believe that to truly appreciate and promote Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, companies need templates to follow, to hear a variety of cases to guide them in creating their own D,E&I policies. Our speakers provide just that; their speeches are grounded from their varied backgrounds, industries, and experiences.

Come join us on Friday, the 20th November for an afternoon of inspiring TED-style talks on Equity. Get your tickets NOW at www.iwdsg.com; registrations close at midnight on 19th November.

 

Please contact us, should you have any queries or if you are interested in sponsoring the event. Please check your spam folder if you are not seeing our mail updates.
