Empowering Women in NTU

Women@NTU is an NTU initiative that unites the NTU community for diversity, equity, inclusion and excellence by providing a platform to exchange ideas, advance and promote women’s roles at the university and beyond.

The 2021 marks the Year of Celebrating SG Women and propels the shifting of societal mindsets and fostering a more equitable society for both men and women through inventive solutions. Beyond celebrating the contributions of women who have changed the world, we recognise the works of all women in the NTU community and aim to empower them to achieve the same.

The initiative aims to be at the forefront to advance women’s roles and provide strategic solutions that lead and propel women in academia and research endeavours at NTU.

About Women@NTU

The women initiative aims to promote awareness, education, and advocacy on gender diversity, and brings the NTU community together by providing a platform to ignite new ideas that empower women within the university and beyond.
