Preparing the Next Generation of Workforce: Diversity & Inclusion at Work

Diversity and inclusion are important elements in an organisation to encourage growth and drive innovation. Today, AMCHAM held a webinar on diversity & inclusion, with a dialogue focused on preparing the next generation for when they enter the workforce.

Our guest speakers include Li Wei Cheah, Greater Asia Region Inclusion Program Manager at Global Diversity, Inclusion, and Social Impact (GDIS) at Intel Technology Sdn. Bhd.; Jolene Ferguson, Director of Asia Operations at CBRE; Rami Madani, Head of School at The International School of Kuala Lumpur (ISKL); and Monsy Siew, Executive Director of KPMG Malaysia, and the session was moderated by Zatalini Zulkiply, Regional Communications Director, Asia Pacific, General Electric International, Inc. (GE), GE Woman Network Committee.

Speakers shared their respective organizations’ approach to diversity and inclusion practices in their organization’s activities, hiring practices and leadership. One thing they all highlighted in common is that it is often upper management who drives diversity and inclusion, while it is up to everyone within the organization to provide support to ensure the initiative’s success.
