Following the success of the inaugural Women Mean Business luncheon to celebrate International Women's Day (IWD) 2007, the Australian High Commission and National Committee for UNIFEM are again joining forces to host Singapore’s premier IWD event.
This year we are delighted and honoured to have Ms Chua Sock Koong, Group Chief Executive Officer of SingTel as our Special Guest Speaker.

She is also a member of the Singapore Government’s Council on Corporate Disclosure and Governance and a Member of the Tax Advisory Committee in the Ministry of Finance. Ms Chua has had a distinguished career at SingTel and played a very important role in many of its achievements in local and international markets.

Women Mean Business is an Australia-Singapore initiative aimed at commemorating IWD2008 by providing a forum for businesspeople to unite, network and learn from one another. All funds raised from this initiative will be donated to a women's shelter in Batam; assisting UNIFEM's efforts to support women and children affected by domestic violence in Indonesia and across our region.
