[Virtual] AMCHAM’S Women’s Week 2022 – Day 2

AMCHAM held the second day of its Women’s Week today, 16 March 2022. Wan Nadiah Wan Mohd Abdullah Yaakob Group CEO at TMC Life Sciences Berhad kicked off the session with an opening presentation that addressed the toll on women brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, citing lack of societal and organizational support towards women during this time, on top of existing inequalities. However, she also pointed out the positive change happening and what can be done to provide support and ensure good health and well-being.

She then joined the panel session with Ren Chung Yu, Deputy Executive Director & Advocacy Director, Women Aids’ Organization, and Tehmina Kaoosji, Communications Consultant, Broadcast Journalist & Gender Equality Activist. Azrul Mohd Khalib, the Chief Executive of the Galen Center moderated this session. 

The conversation surrounded the subject of going beyond basic healthcare for women, what is needed to achieve ‘total health’. Our panelists each delved into bias against women – what fuels it and how to rectify the problem, thus achieving a safer and healthier work environment for women.

Special thanks to all our guest speakers for conducting a very insightful session and a much-needed conversation. 

Join us for our third and final day of AMCHAM’s Women’s Week 2022 tomorrow, from 9.00 am to 11.45 am.
