Siam Piwat promotes diversity and equality in support International Women's Day


Siam Piwat joins in supporting International Women's Day (IWD) on March 8, 2023 to reinforce its commitment to diversity and women empowerment under IWD's main campaign, #EmbraceEquity. The company strives to become a role model in fostering diversity and equality as well as open doors of opportunity for all groups of stakeholders to thrive on its well-growing platform and contribute to sustainability in all dimensions.

Siam Piwat, the leading real estate developer of world-renowned projects, such as Siam Paragon, Siam Center, Siam Discovery, ICONSIAM, and Siam Premium Outlets Bangkok, is helmed by a management team comprising over 67% women, under the female leadership of Chadatip Chutrakul, Chief Executive Officer of Siam Piwat Group, who has steered the business to surpass every limitation and overcome every crisis – a success affirmed by awards from international organizations, such as the UN Women 2022 Thailand Women's Empowerment Principles (WEPs) Award for Gender Equality in the Workplace and the Excellence in Women Empowerment Strategy Award from the HR Excellence Awards 2022. All of these achievements stem from Siam Piwat's commitment to equality and diversity and its earnestness in translating the commitment into practice. Let's get to know the strong women playing major roles in driving Siam Piwat towards growth and progress.

For a business to grow steadily and sustainably, it must have an efficient work process, an appropriate risk management system, and good corporate governance. Women play key roles in designing clear and transparent guidelines and implementing them in compliance with regulations. Women have excellent crisis management skills. They are decisive and straightforward but also flexible and detail-oriented. These attributes enable the organization to readily cope with and promptly adapt to every situation.
