Empowering stories of NUHS woman leaders and their advice for working women.
I believe that we can empower women by creating more opportunities for them to achieve higher positions within the NUHS family.
More flexibility and support mechanism in place to allow women of different ages and stages of life to contribute and be at their best in what they do.
Empowering women means trusting them to take control of their choices and decisions. While we already have a mentorship programme in place under our Women in Science and Technology initiative, I believe we can expand it to accomplish more, professionally and personally. This includes identifying opportunities and building a holistic support system to allow women to manage their career transitions within NUHS.
I also hope that we can continue to accept and embrace individuality and practice inclusion in the work place. Although there are certain qualities expected of women, we shouldn't expect them to adhere to a stereotypical idea of feminity - rather, we just need to embrace the ways in which everyone is unique.
