Valerie is passionate about the “S” in ESG, and has acquired a range of experiences around community engagement, social policy, and change management since 2015.
Through her undergraduate studies at the National University of Singapore (NUS), Valerie studied social protection measures for disadvantaged groups, community development theory, and the drivers of systemic poverty. She has an in-depth understanding of the strengths and needs of marginalized groups, such as persons with disabilities and migrant workers. Through on-the-ground engagement and academic research, she identified policy barriers that hinder low-income families from attaining home ownership. She also supported the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) in the launch of the Community Link (ComLink) pilot launch, closely engaging with and consolidating feedback from low-income households.
Valerie has also spearheaded social impact consulting projects, applying her social sector expertise to tackle challenges in the non-profit sector. Her work has impacted over 250 non-profit staff, and over 400 beneficiaries, while deepening her community engagement and change management expertise through working closely with organizational leadership and beneficiaries.
Valerie’s experiences in Human Capital Consulting sharpened her understanding of behavioural change and organizational design in change management. Through working with multinational corporations on their people change strategies, she has honed her understanding of the impact of corporate governance on employee motivation.
