Gender balance in conferences

FemaleFounders works with conference organizers to help them offer more balanced events.

 

Our goal is to showcase a more diverse picture of their industries by making it easy to identify and invite female leaders to keynotes and panels.   

 

The list below has been selected from previous conferences and public events in Singapore. If you know a great female who has presented at public events in the last year please get in touch. 

SPEAKERS

 
This is a list of female entrepreneurs, founders and leaders based in Singapore, who have presented in the past in keynotes, public events and conferences. The list is not exhaustive or organized in any particular order. It is meant to give you ideas to solve the "I don't know any female speakers" problem. Female Founders is not a speakers bureau and does not represent or receive commissions. Click on the profile pictures to link to their LinkedIn profile and reach out directly, and feel free to suggest more female speakers sending an email to info@femalefounders.com
