Singapore, 1 March 2006 - Each Year, Her World magazine honours two special Singapore women for their outstanding achievements and for being a source of inspiration to the nation.
The Her World Woman of the Year Award and the Young Woman Achiever Award will be presented at the Woman of the Year 2005 gala dinner on Wednesday, March 1, 2006, at the Raffles Hotel Ballroom. Dr Ng Eng Hen, Minister for Manpower and Second Minister for Defence will be the Guest-of-Honour.
WOMAN OF THE YEAR 2005 : Euleen Goh
CEO, Standard Chartered Bank
The Woman of the Year award celebrates the achievements of a woman in Singapore who has made an outstanding contribution to society, projects the best image of our nation and is an inspiration and role model to other women.
This year’s winner, Euleen Goh, is the CEO of Standard Chartered Bank. She is one of the few women who have broken through the glass ceiling in the corporate world. A chartered accountant by profession, Euleen rose through the ranks since joining the bank in 1984. She is responsible for driving the bank’s corporate governance and strategic agenda in the country.
In addition to her work commitment, Euleen is also the chairman of International Enterprise Singapore, the lead agency spearheading our country’s efforts to develop its external economic wing. One of the causes she champions is the fight against HIV/AIDS discrimination in the workplace.
YOUNG WOMAN ACHIEVER 2005 : Theresa Goh
The Young Woman Achiever Award recognises the success and potential of a young woman who is seen to pave the way for future generations. This year’s award recipient is Theresa Goh, a national swimmer. Though born with spina bifida, she overcame all odds to win many awards and medals for Singapore in paralympic swimming.
From the age of 12, Theresa started training competitively. She represented Singapore at the 2002 Commonwealth Games and the 2004 Athens Paralympics, where she finished in 5th position in the 100m Breaststroke.
She is Singapore’s best-performing athlete and has broken more records than most able-bodied athletes. Given her age and great determination to succeed, it looks like Theresa can continue excelling for Singapore for a long time yet.
