And a word from HORP’s CEO

“Gender diverse and inclusive companies are financially more successful, better employers, greater innovators, and better corporate citizens”, added Anthony A. Rose, Chairman and CEO of House of Rose Professional Pte. Ltd.

Rose is also the author of the book ‘Break the Ceiling Touch the Sky: success secrets of the world’s most inspirational women’. He remarks that the book originally inspired the summit. “The Break the Ceiling Touch the Sky forum is a simple way for organizations to accelerate the development of their women leaders. Accelerate gender diversity within their organizations. And learning from the best practices across industries and countries of the best organizations, instead of reinventing the wheel. It is also a means by which Companies can showcase their own consistent progress on overall Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. They can contribute to shaping better leadership, business and a better world.”
