Singapore's premier social innovation conference returns as We

Singapore Management University hosts the return of Social iCon, an innovation conference from the Lien Centre for Social Innovation and the International Development Research Centre, to celebrate women championing innovation in four key areas of society: education, environment, employment and economic inclusion.

This flagship one-day conference, We⁴, invites the SMU community and general public to engage with influencers leading social inclusion in Southeast Asia and beyond. Join us for an action-packed day of keynotes, panel discussions, networking, and exhibitions designed to inspire and empower.
