The sensitivity and safe space provided for everyone to be heard.


I got the chance to express my thoughts in a safe space.


I liked that it was a small group because we had more time to share and explore things that were mentioned. It also helped that the facilitators had amicable personas and tried to engage us directly, which made participation a lot easier.


I felt safe in sharing my experiences and observations. My group mates were candid in sharing their stories. I like that, as a group, we set our ground rules before going deep into the topic of conversation.


The facilitators were very enthusiastic and provided us with a safe space to have conversations on sensitive but important topics.


The stories shared were enlightening; everyone was non-judgemental, honest and open. Very commendable.


Being able to share my experience and hearing other’s inputs contributed to having a valuable discussion.

What is Candid Singapore?

Candid Singapore is a non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting diversity and inclusion. We specialise in creating safe spaces for dialogue and understanding in Singapore. Our workshops are run free of charge.

How are you affiliated with MCCY?

We are proudly supported by the Ministry of Culture, Community & Youth (MCCY) of Singapore, aligning our efforts with national objectives for a harmonious and inclusive society. Thanks to the Harmony Fund, we are able to conduct our workshops for free.

Who can benefit from Candid’s workshops?

Our workshops are designed for everyone—from corporate teams to community groups—looking to deepen their understanding and practice of diversity and inclusion.

How can I register for a workshop?

You can register for our workshops directly through our website. We also offer customised sessions for organisations, which can be arranged by contacting us.

Can workshops be customised for specific organisational needs?

Absolutely! We specialise in customising our content to meet the unique needs and goals of each organisation we work with.

What is the 'privilege quiz' and how can it help?

Our privilege quiz is a tool designed to help individuals understand their own positions of privilege. It's a step towards creating more empathy and awareness in personal and professional interactions.

What are microaggressions and how do they impact the workplace?

Microaggression is a term founded in the field of psychology, and refers to everyday interactions and behaviours that, while usually not ill-intended, are discriminatory in nature towards marginalised groups. Even if the intention is not to harm, the effect of microaggressions can leave an indelible mark on people who regularly have to process these words and actions.

Within the workplace, this can affect the safety and sense of belonging of employees from any sort of minority group, negatively affecting the relationship and workplace dynamic between co-workers.

What is casual racism, and how does Candid Singapore help to address it in its workshops?

Casual racism presents as off-hand remarks or racist comments made in jest, but are nonetheless insensitive. It is commonly relayed through microaggressions that rely on caricatures and misrepresentations.

Our workshops provide a safe space to discuss and understand casual racism, its impact, and how to counteract it. We focus on awareness-building and practical strategies to foster a respectful and inclusive work culture.

How are stereotypes connected to microaggressions and casual racism?

Stereotypes are conventional and oversimplified opinions or assumptions of something or someone, and can be both positive or negative. Racial stereotypes in particular extend to the physical and behavioural characteristics imposed on people based on race, resulting in microaggressions that make up casual racism.

Can your workshops help in identifying unconscious biases and microaggressions?

Yes, a key component of our workshops is to help participants identify and understand their own unconscious biases and the microaggressions that may result from them, leading to more mindful interactions in the workplace.
