Dear Members and Friends,

Integrating diverse talent in the workplace is the responsibility of leaders and all teams. It just makes commercial sense but it takes effort. In support of the National Integration Council’s (NIC’s) 10th anniversary I committed at a recent NIC workshop to organize an integration event. Because all of us in Singapore love acronyms, my workshop team and I call this TACIP which stands for Trade Association and Chambers Integration Programme. This will be: -
  • An annual event starting this year. SICC will organize the first event which will be a moderated panel conversation among companies which have integrated multi-national teams across their businesses. The objective is to learn how they do it, what works well and what does not. The event date is 23 Oct 2019.
  • The idea is for each Singapore Chamber that is SBF, SCCCI, SICC, SICCI, SMCCI & SMF all of whom have given their support to take turns to organize always collaborating with the key foreign national chambers AmCham, AustCham, BritCham & EuroCham all of whom have given their support too.
I’m looking for 5 representatives from different companies to form the panel. If you work for a company with a positive workplace culture where diversity is made real by inclusion, I want to hear from you. Please drop me an email to [email protected] by 5 August 2019.

With my thanks and best wishes for a great week ahead.

Yours faithfully
Victor Mills
Chief Executive
