British Chamber of Commerce Singapore

The British Chamber of Commerce Singapore is an independent membership organisation committed to helping strengthen the ties between the UK and Singapore. We have done so since 1954.

Whether you are just starting your research into ASEAN by scoping the market opportunities in Singapore, have established your business and seeking growth, building connections to the UK Government, or looking for brand exposure and employee development opportunities, the Chamber is here to support your needs at every stage of your journey.

With a full calendar of activities throughout the year including events, publications and opportunities to collaborate with our members, the Chamber team is available to help as a point of resource, introductions, networking, learning and profile-raising.

Our goal is to deliver Member Value through the services we offer that all work towards supporting our members in achieving your business objectives and aligning with our Mission of Building Networks, Connecting Businesses, and Creating Opportunities.

All benefit from our leading position as a strong and credible voice for our members and British businesses in Singapore and beyond.

About the Webinar

As part of our three-day International Women's Day activities for 2022, this panel discussion will review the biases creating barriers for professional women in today's society.


These can be summarised in four main areas, which will each be covered in the discussion and Q&A for audience participation:


  • Physical barriers, such as design influences that devalue female needs
  • Financial barriers, such as masculine perceptions of "breadwinners"
  • Mental barriers, such as enabling women to have a respected voice, and imposter syndrome
  • Educational barriers, such as laying the right foundations for future generations and changing workforce perceptions


With thanks to our Official Diversity & Inclusion Partner, Barclays, and Supporting Partners for our International Women's Day events this year, St. James's Place Wealth ManagementMercer, Swire Shipping and NatWest Markets.
