Exyte leader Tan Siok Peng talks diversity and inclusion

Tan Siok Peng is a female leader in a key role at Exyte, as Senior Vice President Finance, Exyte Asia-Pacific. She shares with publication Human Resources how leaders are taking more responsibility for diversity and inclusion, and helping women overcome career challenges.

"The one message I would convey is, be true to yourself, stand firm and don’t pretend to be what you are not," says Tan.

Building a balanced and inclusive environment

Whether she is at home or at work, Tan consciously ensures that she harnesses the best potential in the people around her. For Tan, building a balanced and inclusive environment is essential for economies and communities to reach their full potential. 

She explains: "Building a balanced and inclusive environment is essential for economies and communities to thrive, and it is not a numbers’ game. Balance to me, is an amalgamation of various factors.

"Whether at home or at work, I consciously ensure that I harness the best potential in the people around me. Regardless of the differences that may exist within societies, at the workplace or at home, I believe that by adopting a combination of 'best person for the best job' mantra, showing encouragement and walking the talk, that to me will help towards building a more balanced and inclusive environment."
