The nominations for Singapore’s first gender equality awards were made by members of the public, as
well as members of AWARE. Each nominee has made a significant contribution to promoting gender
equality. For the judges, the key factors for deciding of the shortlist were the effort and impact of the
nominee’s contribution and the nominee’s identification with gender equality.
The judging panel comprised: AWARE board member and education entrepreneur Lindy Ong, playwright Eleanor Wong, journalist Ong Soh Chin, academic Philip Holden
and ambassador-at-large Professor Tommy Koh.
The winners will be unveiled at AWARE's Big Ball fundraising gala on October 17.
