Careers Fair, SACC 2020

What is Samaggi Seminar?

Samaggi Seminar, or as previously known as the Samaggi Samagom Academic Conference, is an academic forum where established speakers share their insights through talks and exchange ideas with one another on the panel. The event is a key part of the Samaggi Academic Conference and Career Fairs (SACC).

In the upcoming Samaggi Seminar 2021, our 13th consecutive year organising the event, it remains our aim to spark interest and promote engagement in a variety of academic subjects by providing diverse and exciting activities. We will be streaming talks, followed by live Q&A sessions with our speakers, as well as featuring a topical panel discussion – all delivered to your doorstep through an online platform. This means that you can access our quality content from anywhere on the planet! Furthermore, a small group discussion session will be held with each speaker, exclusively available to members of Samaggi Samagom.

Samaggi Seminar 2021 will be held on 5th – 7th February 2021 under the theme “Inclusive Innovation”. Our six engaging talks will be delivered by a keynote speaker and five more distinguished speakers from each of the five different promising fields – Human Capital and the Environment, Information and Technology, Health, Arts and Culture, and Business.

The Theme: Inclusive Innovation

We are passing through an indisputably eventful moment in human history – whether it be the COVID-19 pandemic, the Black Lives Matter movement, or the ongoing economic crisis as a result of travel restrictions. These newfound pressures have led to an increase in inequality and societal divides. Fortunately many of these issues are alleviated with novel innovations, but how do we ensure that our innovations are inclusive and will not leave anyone behind? This theme will spark curiosity and point to how participants can take part in the journey to a better new normal.

Key Activities

  • Speaker talks: Enjoy the 20-minute easy-to-digest talk from each speaker focusing on the “Inclusive Innovation” in their aspects. The talk will be available on Facebook Live and Zoom.
