Malaysia

The 30% Club is a group of chairmen and business leaders who are committed to bringing more women onto Malaysian corporate boards.

The purpose of the 30% Club is to:

  • raise awareness among chairmen and business leaders of the benefits of gender diversity
  • inspire debate and discussion
  • support initiatives to build the pipeline of women in executive and non-executive roles.
     

The 30% Club believes that gender diversity is good for the overall effectiveness of the boardroom – and therefore is good for business.  The 30% Club is not a call for a quota – the 30% Club supports sustainable business-led voluntary change to improve the current gender imbalance on Malaysian boards.

The Malaysian 30% Club was launched on Friday 8th May 2015, in conjunction with an event organized by PEMANDU (Performance Management & Delivery Unit, Prime Minister’s Department) and Bursa Malaysia (Malaysia Stock Exchange), and in collaboration with the Ministry of Women, Family and Community Development.

The Prime Minister of Malaysia delivered the keynote address at this high profile business event, which was attended by Chairmen, Board Directors and CEOs of public listed companies and large public companies in Malaysia.  His message was based on the theme “Lead The Change – Getting Women on Boards”.  Elizabeth Passey, Representative of the 30% Club UK attended and spoke at the launch, sharing her thoughts and experiences on the topic.
