The Business Women Committee was launched in May 2011 to enable women of different nationalities, working and living in Singapore, achieve professional and personal success.


This committee aims at giving women a strong voice in the Singapore business community, enabling them to make a difference. By attracting inspirational speakers and hosting interactive events throughout the year, the Women of Influence committee creates opportunities for women to be successful in future leadership roles.


The French Chamber encourages its female members occupying senior manager position in MNCs to participate in the Business Women Network committee meetings, organised every two months on a relevant topic. These meetings would provide excellent networking opportunities, address work-life balance concerns and develop useful skill sets.
