Partnering with Sumitomo Life Insurance & Temasek Polytechnic, we co-designed a new concept of the TomoWork Talent Accelerator Programme which focused on the digital sectors.

As an inclusive management consulting company, we value our commitment to championing a more inclusive workforce & will continue to work with our team to create an equitable workplace where everyone is able to realise their full potential.
YMCA Inclusive Challenge
In support of the YMCA Inclusive Challenge 2021, we joined TomoWork in the completion of a 5 km trek together from the National Stadium to Marina Barrage! The YMCA Inclusive Challenge 2021 is a 125 km walk to raise awareness & funds in order for youths with special needs to lead a more independent & dignified life.
[This activity was conducted in accordance with applicable safe distancing measures at the point in time. Masks were taken off temporarily during high intensity activities & worn back after.]
To kick off 2021, we conducted a disability awareness project ‘Hello Inclusivity’, in collaboration with our co-working space *SCAPE HubQuarters! This included a variety of interactive disability simulations to share daily lived experiences of persons with visual impairment, hearing loss & physical disabilities. In this session, we also shared about the resources from the Singapore government to support inclusive employment.

The TomoWork A.B.L.E. Webinar Series
We share a common belief with TomoWork that Abilities, Belonging, Leadership, Empowerment (A.B.L.E) are the key success factors to achieve the goal of an inclusive workplace.
This webinar series was co-designed with Sumitomo Life Insurance to highlight the importance of Diversity & Inclusion by opening up a dialogue on how Persons with Disabilities & Corporates can work in tandem to build inclusive ecosystems, as well as explorations on how COVID-19 has fundamentally changed the way we work.
ASEAN Youth+ Meeting on Peace & Security
We were proud to have flown the Singapore flag at the 2020 ASEAN+ Youth Meeting on Peace & Security where we were invited to conduct a workshop on Diversity & Inclusion.
Our workshop focused on our experiences & professional expertise in our D&I efforts, social entrepreneurship & how we work with our partners in the people, public & private sectors to increase Persons with Disabilities (PWD) employment in Singapore.
SCAPE HubQuarters Community: Power Up!
As workplaces remained closed due to COVID-19 regulations, we collaborated with Hubbers at *SCAPE HubQuarters to organise a 3-part “Community: Power Up!” series. Built on the principle that HubQuarters is not just a co-working space but a community, we designed this event to promote social connections & build stronger relationships by providing the platform for Hubbers to share their expertise.
Yay! It's Monday with TomoWork!
Yay! It’s Monday with TomoWork is our first virtual engagement activity, designed specially for TomoWork members & partners. During the Circuit Breaker period, we saw an opportunity to help our community build new habits that benefit the future of work & strengthen personal resilience.
