WIBA launches in Singapore and announces its strategic partnership with the Algorand Foundation to bring blockchain education to the fore.
WIBA Arrives in Singapore
The mission-driven non-profit organization aims to foster growth in the blockchain space by enlarging the talent pool of women in Asia. WIBA rallies under the banner ‘Let’s build an inclusive future with the power of Blockchain’ and seeks to promote better representation for women in this industry.
WIBA, backed by Algorand Foundation, also announced its effort to roll out blockchain certification via institutions of higher learning. WIBA will manage the syllabus and certification under the auspices of the Algorand Foundation and offer it for 12 weeks.
“Singapore is a relatively mature market with a significant workforce in Web3.0 and blockchain-related companies. Our aim for Singapore is to serve the ladies through 3 key pillars: education, projects, and skills, of which ladies would be enabled and empowered to advance their journey in the blockchain space. Strategic partnerships with corporates, associations, and communities will be forged to improve gender diversity and inclusion.”
WIBA’s Regional Plans
WIBA’s announcement of its collaborations with the Algorand Foundation and Untam3d is the first of many to come. In addition, there will be more regional linkages to allow for cross-border collaborations for women in blockchain.
Singapore is an important blockchain hub both regionally and globally because its government adopts an inclusive policy that fosters innovation through blockchain. This makes Singapore an ideal jurisdiction for WIBA to push its initiative in steering women’s talents to leadership positions.
“We are overwhelmed by the response we have received at our Singapore launch party. This serves as great encouragement for us to do more for a more inclusive economy with blockchain. We are now planning for our Philippines launch party by year-end and hope more ladies can join us then.”
WIBA has set its sights on the Philippines as its next chapter on its roadmap in championing the role of women. The organization will be forging partnerships with industry players, educational institutions, governments, and other organizations to provide community support networks for women in Asia.
