The number of women in the workforce has grown over the years and more and more women have assumed leadership position roles be it as a supervisor, head of team, department, or owners of their own businesses to name a few. Malaysia itself has shown support for women becoming leaders and has written down plans as well as initiatives to support women in such positions.
For instance, the Malaysian Budget 2022 outlined that all publicly listed companies (PLC) ought to include female directors on the board. According to the Malaysian Finance Minister at that point in time, states that it was impossible to ignore the contribution of women to society as a whole, which calls for respect and support. Therefore, this initiative was to recognize women’s contribution to the corporate sector.
