Resilience and Engagement Division
I am part of the Capability Development team in the Resilience and Engagement Division (RED) in MCCY, which helps public offers become better at engaging our stakeholders – particularly our citizens.
Together with my team, I worked closely with agencies in developing the Citizen Engagement Fieldguide which is intended to support agencies in their engagement efforts. It is one of the ways through which we educate agencies on the different modes of engagement, the pros and cons of various techniques, and share learnings from engagements done by various agencies. In addition to the Fieldguide, I have had the opportunity to develop a system to help agencies track their engagements.
Citizen Engagement is important, but it carries with itself a baggage of scepticism and fear. Suffice to say, engagements need to be done with greater tact to overcome these barriers so that honest and open conversations between the public and the government can take place. Having had the chance to do some frontline engagements myself, I know this is extremely challenging but something worth striving for.
Given that I had no prior engagement experience before joining the office, I am grateful for the learning experience, supportive bosses and the autonomy to experiment, which has helped me grow over the last 2 years.
Wong Shi Lei
As part of the integration team in Resilience and Engagement Division, my work revolves around engaging our stakeholders and rallying supporters to join us in promoting positive interactions between locals and foreigners in our communities. What I enjoy most would be interacting with people of different backgrounds from various domains - community, schools, workplaces and the media, as well as working with colleagues from partner agencies and different teams across the organisation to explore integration issues. There are always stories and different perspectives shared, which can be interesting and sometimes challenging to address!
I am proud to contribute to a dedicated team that supports the National Integration Council (NIC), examines the state of integration in Singapore, oversees the Singapore Citizenship Journey to welcome new citizens and manages the Community Integration Fund that supports ground-up integration projects. While we are the newest addition to the MCCY family, I look forward to celebrating the NIC 10th Anniversary with our new colleagues, supporters, stakeholders and advocates in 2019 to build a stronger, diverse and cohesive Singapore.
