A three-day event on sustainable, measurable and actionable initiatives for better workplaces

25th October - 27th October 2022

Event Details

We spend most of our adult lives at the workplace, which can impact our lives for better or worse. The key to having a healthy and productive workplace is to have equality and mutual respect for all to thrive. 

Equality at Work 2022 will introduce a framework and practical strategies to promote equality at work, regardless of location, size of business or industry – from the role of leadership in creating a more inclusive environment, to tools to assess your organisation’s gaps in achieving equality. You will hear how companies in Malaysia are tackling inequality and meet like-minded peers in the diversity space through our open networking session via Zoom Events.  

Be a part of the UN Women 2022 Malaysia Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) Awards on Day 3, where we will recognise Malaysia-based companies who have implemented practical initiatives in creating more gender-inclusive workplaces. The WEPs Awards is organised by WeEmpowerAsia, a UN Women program funded by the European Union, and supported by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
