Tanglin tackles the discussion on DEI & ESG

Tanglin tackles the discussion on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) and Environment, Social and Governance (ESG).

Just before last week’s Polling Day Public Holiday we welcomed Dr Vinika Rao to the Institute at Tanglin. Those that attended came away with some wider thoughts to add to the many political discussions happening in households around Singapore over the weekend.

As an Executive Director at INSEAD Africa Initiative and Hoffmann Global Institute for Business and Society, Asia, as well as being a veteran of the Corporate World, Dr Rao seamlessly explained the complex and multi-layered subject of DEI and ESG and why sustainability and diversity initiatives need to go hand in with inclusion. Through her research Dr Rao guides global organizations on Diversity and Inclusion and Sustainability initiatives and believes that business has the potential to be a force for good, led by managers who value social impact and are committed to the UN Sustainability Development Goals.

The event was attended by an inter-generational audience made up of teachers, staff, parents, and students. Each with different professional and personal viewpoints on what this topic means to them. Using a mix of her own personal experiences along with case studies from the corporate world, she encouraged attendees and particular the students to share their own personal experiences of diversity and inclusion.

This latest event was a fantastic example of the Institute’s aims to foster and promote a culture of thought leadership, encouraging discourse to inspire, challenge and prepare the next generation of leaders in our community.
