Dear Members and Friends

Over the last 8 years the Chamber has consistently called for an end to discrimination of all kinds especially discrimination based on age and gender. Discrimination is a poison which prevents people and businesses from achieving their potential and reduces commercial success.

There has only been some progress on ending gender discrimination. For instance, it took a pandemic to significantly extend the adoption of flexible work arrangements. But equal pay for women and men doing the same job is still not the norm it should be.

Even more worrying is the very little progress made on ending age discrimination because of societal and workplace prejudices.

How do we as individuals and companies change this lamentable state of affairs? When will we achieve an age blind workforce? When will businesses stop sabotaging their own efforts to attract and retain talent? What is the role of government in all this and would legislation help or hinder?

Join me for an in-person dialogue with Distinguished Speaker Prof. Tommy Koh on 16 September when he will address the topic of ageism and dialogue with you to find solutions. Register here.

Yours faithfully
Victor Mills
