Deloitte’s SheXO Program underlines the firm’s commitment to supporting the personal and professional development of established, emerging and aspiring women leaders – within Deloitte and our client organisations.
Through forums, masterclasses and other approaches, the Program aims to create a supportive environment where female leaders can connect and feel inspired to drive meaningful change in the communities in which they work.
In January 2021, Deloitte SEA launched a local chapter of SheXO with a one-day forum on entrepreneurial leadership, held in Singapore.
Over 80 senior business leaders from a range of industries attended. Many participated remotely, in accordance with social distancing measure. Speakers explored the importance of building entrepreneurial leadership today, and the differing views and expectations people have about women leaders.
Panelists included Cindy Hook, CEO, Deloitte Asia Pacific, and Sun Xueling, Minister of State for the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Social and Family Development in Singapore. Both shared valuable insights into the challenges female business leaders face in the workplace, and successful approaches for overcoming them.
