Many dream of a better tomorrow but who really takes us there? The answer is leaders.
It is effective leaders who create a roadmap to guide us into a newly improved future. No matter in business, politics or everyday life, leaders galvanise others to join into their journeys.
In Malaysia, women make up 33% of positions in senior management teams within companies, the Grant Thornton International Business Report (IBR) has found. The overall number of women in top business roles is still painfully low but there are reasons to be optimistic. The 2020 date sees a rise in women holding significant roles in business operations, especially in the areas of people and strategy as many companies are now making conscious efforts to eliminate “unconscious” biases that have permeated organizational processes to ensure an even playing field.
The new service economy no longer depends on physical strength but skills that come naturally to women namely attention to detail, determination and measured thinking; the female brain is genetically prewired for long-term strategic planning and nurturing people and this is empowering women to take on more.
Women deserve equal opportunities to realise their full potential. As powerful agents of change, women leaders can become a centrifugal force for good in our nation and the world. For the first time, we are witnessing the emergence of female leaders from across the generations to infuse their knowledge with the drive to make a difference.
Women leaders also need support at this critical time. Covid-19 has changed everything and the pressure on women leaders has never been greater. Now, more than ever, we need to seriously think about the role of the modern female leader and mother as we transition into a new normal.
The Women in Leadership conference 2021 aims to bring established women leaders under one roof to be inspired connect and grow in a safe space.
