The Diversity Dilemma: Balancing Targets and Gender Equity

Back in 2011, the Government of Malaysia, in collaboration with Bursa Malaysia, took a significant step by mandating that all public listed companies (PLCs) strive for a minimum of 30% women representation on their corporate boards. Initially aimed at the top 100 PLCs, this policy was later extended to encompass a broader spectrum of companies, to create a more balanced and dynamic leadership landscape.

As women ascend to leadership roles, their voices become influential drivers of change. The push for increased female representation in leadership roles is not merely a response to social pressures but reflective of a progressive step towards fostering innovation, decision-making quality and overall corporate performance.

Delving into the multifaceted impact of female representation in leadership roles and exploring the tangible benefits and potential drawbacks of a set target is Christine Sterk, Chief Business Officer, at Pulsifi.
