(Singapore 6 July 2023) Cindy Karim, Founder and CEO of CK Star Entertainment, has received the Youth Award from the 4th Her Times Women Empowerment Award. She is one of the five awardees who honored at awarding ceremony which held at the Indonesian Embassy in Singapore.

“Her Times Women Empowerment Award” (WEA) was inaugurated by Her Times, an arm of the Fortune Times Group, with the support of the Indonesian Embassy in Singapore on the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Singapore and Indonesia in 2017. WEA aims to recognize exceptional women who have made significant contributions in the fields of education, business, society, and philanthropy in Singapore, Indonesia, and other ASEAN countries. Besides their remarkable achievements, the winners are also dedicated to improve women’s lives in areas such as education, healthcare, and social development.

The commitment remains to empower women to become valuable contributors to sustainable economic growth, political stability, and the building of harmonious societies.
