On 17th November, SCWO hosted entrepreneurs Bernadette Giam from Creative Eateries and Pek Lay Peng from SocietyA, along with President Junie Foo at a panel discussion, moderated by Eunice Olsen.
The discussion was held in conjunction with SCWO’s inaugural fundraising campaign, Gift of Giving, where 6 women entrepreneurs came forward to pledge a percentage of their profits and revenue to SCWO. Creative Eateries and SocietyA were two of the six retailers participating in the campaign.
Streamed on both Zoom and Facebook, the event was attended by many long-time supporters of SCWO, who showed their enthusiasm to contribute to the campaign. The discussion focused on how women entrepreneurs can grow their businesses and funding through network building and role modelling. Bernadette and Lay Peng also shared why they are participating in the Gift of Giving Campaign and how women can support causes that aim to advance women’s development.
SCWO president Junie Foo also shared the various initiatives that will benefit from the fundraising campaign and how they strive to empower women. On behalf of SCWO, Junie also thanked the six retailers for their generosity and support.
