FestivalForGood Conversation 4: Building Communities with Purpose: Uplifting Women, Changing Lives

Conversations is a series of talks and panel discussions as part of FestivalForGood 2020 on topics regarding the social enterprise sector, social impact, and doing good in Singapore. We hope to spread awareness about social enterprises and social issues in Singapore, as well as engage members of the public in meaningful discussions about how we can make Singapore a better place for all.

This conversation is organised as part of FestivalForGood 2020, Asia's largest celebration of Social Enterprises, and the social impact they created.

South Beach Consortium is the virtual venue partner.

Conversation 4: Building Communities with Purpose: Uplifting Women, Changing Lives

In many parts of Asia, including urban cities like Singapore, there are still women without access to education, healthcare and job opportunities. This creates a vicious cycle that prevents them from having sustainable livelihoods. Find out how some social entrepreneurs are empowering women to build a world, in which they can thrive.
