DocDoc who is the Co-Founder and President of Grace Park stated that even though sustainable developmental goals are common for the world, each nation needs to work inside the limits of monetary, political, and social real factors. Hence, it is significant that pioneers in Singapore meet up to find creative yet viable approaches to beat the difficulties of gender inequalities.
Manisha Seewal who is the Group CMO, Carro, and CEO of Jualo.com stated that each association independent of their size, area, or residence should have its impact to guarantee that Singapore has a gender unbiased work environment.

Vishwesh Iyer, who is the Co-Founder and Director of Women Icons Network stated that the issues of tending to Gender Inequities have been additionally exacerbated by the pandemic. It is significant for pioneers to perceive that running after a gender unbiased work environment is probably the big challenge confronting us today at the convergence of social and financial disparities.
The activity, driven by the Women Icons Network, is a means to discuss the issue of gender equity as advised by the Singapore government. This activity will pave way for the discussions on women’s development also. Following the launch in Singapore, The Collective will be started in Malaysia and India soon.
