The Singapore Women’s Weekly, one of Singapore’s most popular women’s magazines, has revealed the winners of this year’s Women of Our Time Awards, an annual award honouring the achievements of the nation’s most inspiring women. These women were recognised at a gala dinner presentation this evening at Four Seasons Hotel Singapore.
Guest-of-Honour Dr Amy Khor, Minister of State, Ministry of Health and Ministry of Manpower, graced the event.
Selected for outstanding leadership and performance in their professions and in public service, 18 honourees were nominated from six fields: Arts & Media; Finance & Commerce; Education & Public Service; Science & Technology; Health, Sports & Wellness; and Design & Style.
The panel of judges for the Awards includes Dr Ann Tan, Immediate Past President of the Singapore Council of Women's Organisations (SCWO) and Chairperson of Women’s Register; Ms Agnes Sng, General Manager of Raymond Weil; and Ms Barker. The panel selected a winner from each category, which was announced at the dinner.
Lusi, CEO and Life Coach of Lusi Group, emerged a big winner tonight, bagging two awards. She took home an award under the Finance & Commerce category, as well as an award for the ‘Most Inspiring Woman’ as voted by readers of The Weekly’s September 2012 issue via an SMS poll.
Tara Barker, Editor-in-Chief of The Singapore Women’s Weekly, said: “These unique awards honour the unsung heroines of Singapore. We celebrate these women who are leaders in their fields, yet are not known to the public at large. Our goal is to show the talents, energy, creativity and heart of women in Asia – women who will inspire us all to live our best lives.”
