In promoting diversity and inclusion, the 30% Club Malaysia is advocating for at least 30% female representation in boardrooms and C-level leadership. This target for public listed companies (PLCs) is in line with the Malaysian Code of Corporate Governance 2021 while Bursa Malaysia requires at least one woman director by June 2023. Currently, women hold about 18% of board seats. The gap to close is 700+ seats to reach 30%.
To succeed as a director, one needs to go through rigorous training. Join us to discuss responsibilities, realities, readiness and preparation.
We encourage you to attend if you are a new female board member, business owner, CEO or are part of top management and aspire to embark on a board journey.
