Keynote Address (10.00am)

Population was seen as key to a brighter future in Singapore’s early days and women were called upon to have smaller families, become more educated, and work outside the home to grow the economy. Today, governments still hang the nation’s future on increasing women’s participation in the labor force, expecting them to care for rapidly increasing older populations, and have larger families. How can we reconcile these often contradictory goals and navigate multiple and conflicting pressures in this time of unprecedented demographic change?
