Gender Equality in the Workplace: Where Does Malaysia Place, How and Why Do We Need to Do Better

“… In November and December, I was really, really proud to see Malaysia has more than 30% chairmanship in the GLC, Government Linked Companies and Government-Linked Investment Companies,” Datuk Noripah Kamso, former chairman of Bank Rakyat, said in a memorable webinar co-hosted by GCMY and Tulips Movement Malaysia, on the matter of the realization of the 30% women representation on public-listed corporate boards movement started by the 30% Club.

Gender equality, in its many facets and nuances, face an uphill battle in the corporate space. In a McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) report, there is a 50% drop-off of women representation in the career progression pipeline from entry-level jobs to senior management roles. This is a lost opportunity, as the same report indicates that Malaysia stands at USD$50 billion a year increase to its GDP by 2025.
