There is a need to do more to support women and their families. Apart from providing quality childcare, we also need to recognise the need to redesign work for the modern woman. This enables them to juggle family responsibilities and still reach their career aspirations!
Singapore’s only female labour MP, Ms Yeo Wan Ling, has shared about the need to help companies “redesign work for women”. This includes changing the way companies view arrangements like flexible work. It is as simple as offering females the convenience of working in offices near their homes. This facilitates any childcare or caregiving needs that may arise.
