Symposium Wanita 2017
PPIS’ Symposium Wanita is back again this year! Our first run in 2011 sought to re-evaluate women’s positions and roles in the family while in 2015, we celebrated the diverse identities of Singapore Muslim women. This year, we will take a step beyond recognising the numerous hats that women today hold and discuss more deeply how this phenomenon affects women. The Symposium will be targeted at igniting minds on the importance of understanding oneself to help us reflect and act in the best way forward for ourselves, our aspirations and those around us.
Do join us on Oct.14 as our first speaker, Dr Marwa Azab, Lecturer at the Psychology Department of California State University Long Beach elucidates the multiplicity of roles played by women and how it impacts us. Second speaker, Senior Lecturer at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, Ms Oniatta Effendi, will then take us on a journey to stress the importance of constant reflection and refining to be who we aspire to be and the legacy we wish to leave behind.
Ask away as questions from the Audience will be addressed during the Panel Discussion with PPIS Principal Therapist, Ms Maimunah Mosli as Moderator and our 2 Speakers. Symposium Wanita 2017 also brings other organisations together under one roof as booths to provide participants information on various aspects of personal development.
