Singapore women launch network

The Singapore chapter of the Thomson Reuters women's network was launched on 25 June with the support of nearly 100 women at the One Raffles Quay office.

Opening the event, Eddie Haddad, head of sales and customer service, ASEAN, Pacific, South Asia, spoke about the importance of nurturing female talent.

“We have to have Asians running Asia,” he said. “If we don’t let women move up the line, we’re going to have talent flight.”

Participants called for more events, opportunities to interact and exchange views, more pay and access to various job roles.

Celine Ooi of human resources said she wanted more visibility for senior Thomson Reuters women and an opportunity to establish more mentoring relationships. ■
