The Inaugural Semiconductor Women’s Forum in Singapore
The semiconductor industry in Singapore remains a male-dominant industry even though female leadership contributes tremendously in corporate sectors worldwide, as recognized by global studies. One reason for this is the lack of female talents joining our industry. In 2019 and 2020, GSA and Accenture collaborated on a survey ‘GSA: Women in the Semiconductor Industry’. The results showed a significant under-representation of females with the highest in leadership and technical roles.
Singapore Semiconductor Industry Association sees the opportunity to attract more female talents into our industry and grow the talent pool. In fact, many industry leaders have taken the lead and pledge to make a substantial impact on the recruitment, retention, and advancement of women in our industry.
The inaugural Semiconductor Women’s Forum 2021 will be held from 9:00 am to 1:30 pm on 11 March 2021 in a hybrid format. The theme will be Beyond Recovery: Leadership For A More Inclusive And Resilient World. It aims to inspire more female talents to join the semiconductor sector and, at the same time, inspire the current female workforce to stay in the industry. It will also be a platform driving the industry-wide initiative to promote a diverse workforce and inclusive culture in our workplace.
The Forum is also part of Singapore’s national focus to develop and grow the semiconductor talent pool, with SSIA at the helm of driving this initiative under the Electronics Industry Transformation Map (ITM) framework.
The event will bring together industry players and partners to listen to female leaders and entrepreneurs who have excelled in the semiconductor industry to share their experiences and career journeys. Female student leaders from polytechnics and universities will also be participating in the event and become our young industry ambassadors back in school to communicate the vibrancy of our industry.
