International Women’s Day 2024 Inspiring Diversity in CLA Global TS

Singapore, 19 March 2024 – With more women choosing to pursue accounting careers, the industry has grown to include more opportunities for women in the workplace to climb the corporate ladder and spark inspiration within the industry. CLA Global TS celebrated International Women’s Day this year by engaging its people in showing appreciation for all the effort and contribution that the women in the firm have put in, contributing to growth in the firm and as individuals.

Mr. Henry Tan, Group CEO and Chief Innovation Officer, shared, “Celebrating women’s achievements around the globe, CLA Global TS would like to express our appreciation to all female colleagues who have contributed and are continuing to contribute to the success of the firm. Special thanks go to our women leaders, who make up 52% of our top management team across our Singapore, Malaysia, and China offices. With their leadership styles, they have managed to offer more diverse problem-solving approaches, increase organisational collaboration, and thus inspire many of their coworkers to do the same.”

Inspiring Inclusion

With many women amongst the CLA Global TS’s workforce, the firm has been actively practicing policies that support them and their families, allowing for flexible work arrangements, extended childcare, and family care leave. This has allowed women in the firm to focus on their careers while showing good examples to their fellow colleagues.

“It is important to understand that diversity and empowerment have played a huge role in all aspects of society. CLA Global TS has always cultivated a propitious environment for female employees to thrive and will resume our efforts to do so.
