ACCA Malaysia Launches Women’s Network in Conjunction with International Women’s Day 2018

ACCA Malaysia has launched its first Women’s Network, and is calling for business leaders to show real progress on diversity and social mobility issues, as it marks International Women’s Day 2018.

The theme for this year’s event was #pressforprogress, seeking advances on a number of issues from gender pay parity to equality of opportunity. To mark the occasion, the event was chaired by ACCA’s past-president Datuk Alexandra Chin FCCA. Commenting on the launch of the Women’s Network, Datuk Alexandra Chin contends that 2018 is the 40th anniversary of the phrase ‘glass ceiling’ first being used by the business consultant Marilyn Loden. It is clear to her that we still need to push for progress, hence the need to launch Women’s Network to provide a platform for female ACCA members to network, share insights, support and promote career, and discuss issues that matter.

The Launch of ACCA Malaysia Women’s Network was graced by Her Excellency Victoria Treadell, British High Commissioner to Malaysia and attended by ACCA Council and ACCA Malaysia Advisory Committee members, including President Dato’ Merina Abu Tahir. ACCA Malaysia kick-started the ACCA Malaysia Women’s Network with an inspiring panel session from various panellists in the world of business and government, sharing stories and insights.
