Talk on Women in Engineering – Is Malaysia Doing Enough to Provide an Inclusive Environment?

March 2 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm SMT

Join us for an insightful talk as we delve into the realm of women in engineering and critically analyze whether Malaysia is truly doing enough to provide a conducive environment for their success. In today’s rapidly evolving world, it is imperative to examine the role and representation of women in traditionally male-dominated fields, particularly in engineering.

Malaysia, known for its technological advancements and thriving engineering sector, holds immense potential to foster gender equality and inclusivity in this field. However, it raises the question: is enough being done to ensure that women in engineering are not only welcomed but are provided with equal opportunities to excel and thrive?

As we embark on this journey together, we will explore the current landscape of women in engineering within Malaysia. We will shine a light on the advancements made thus far, celebrating the accomplishments of women who have broken barriers and shattered stereotypes. However, our focus will extend beyond mere recognition as we critically analyze whether the infrastructure and support systems in place truly provide a conducive environment for women to prosper.

Through thought-provoking discussions and tangible examples, we will examine the challenges faced by women in engineering, ranging from gender biases and stereotypes to workplace culture and support systems. We will explore the importance of representation and the impact it has on inspiring future generations of women engineers.

Moreover, we will delve into the initiatives and policies that exist within Malaysia, ranging from diversity and inclusion programs to educational reforms, all aimed at bridging the gender gap within the engineering sector. We will question the effectiveness and inclusivity of these measures, seeking ways to improve and enhance the support provided to women in engineering.

This talk aims to inspire and ignite change, fostering a dialogue that challenges the status quo and encourages collective action. Together, we will strive towards creating an environment where women in engineering can thrive and contribute to Malaysia’s technological advancements.

Don’t miss this opportunity to be a part of a conversation that has the potential to shape the future of women in engineering in Malaysia. Join us as we explore whether Malaysia is truly doing enough to provide a conducive environment for women in engineering.
