Inclusive Leadership Forum 2024

An exciting, not-for-profit event to promote greater inclusion in Asia!

DGL Asia hosted our 4th Annual Inclusive Leadership Forum on 30 May 2024. Our theme this year is EMPOWERING INCLUSION IN EVERY STEP! We had approximately 100 people in person and 1,200 registered online participants for the Forum.

It was our first-ever hybrid Inclusive Leadership Forum, blending the energy of in-person excitement with the accessibility of virtual sessions. Building on the success of previous years’ virtual forums, the Inclusive Leadership Forum 2024 was a remarkable experience!

We received fantastic feedback from attendees, who appreciated the engaging sessions and dynamic discussions. A big thank you to our sponsors for their invaluable support. All net proceeds from the event will be donated to our charity partner, Bizlink Centre Singapore Limited, supporting their incredible work. The 2024 forum is more than just a discussion on inclusion; it’s a demonstration of our commitment to making inclusion a reality in every step we take.
