​ManpowerGroup Malaysia celebrates International Women's Day 2024

More than 70% of employees in ManpowerGroup Malaysia are women including a mix of many ethnicities, cultures, and religions that we value. We know that it is essential to prioritize the recruitment, retention, and nurturing of women's skills in the workplace. As you all know, International Women's Day (IWD) on 8 March is an annual global event recognizing the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The global theme for #IWD24 is “Inspire Inclusion” and is a day that also marks a call to action for accelerating gender equality.

In a world that is continually evolving, the empowerment of women stands as a beacon of progress, fostering positive change and breaking down barriers. To "Inspire Inclusion", it is also important to adapt company infrastructure to better serve their needs. Integrating women and girls into tech and advancing sustainability initiatives, such as providing educational opportunities in critical sectors like sustainable agriculture and food security, fosters a more inclusive environment.

The ManpowerGroup Employment Outlook Survey sheds light on the world’s progress toward gender equality, with the goal of closing gaps and increasing productivity and engagement of global workforces. The 2024 data illustrated that, across the globe, gender equality initiatives are on track for less than half of roles. One-third of respondent organizations said that while Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) initiatives have been set, slow or little progress toward goals has been achieved.

Our Country Manager, Sanjoy Ghose said it was great to take the time on International Women’s Day to celebrate the differences that make us all great together. He also shared about the Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) initiatives as it is very important to us, in ManpowerGroup Malaysia ,and also globally. He urged us to speed up the progress and also reminded us to reach toward gender equality. Gender equality in our definition includes aspects such as equal pay, equal promotion opportunities, and equal leadership development initiatives.

Not only is it a social requirement, but empowering women is also a basic human right. It is essential to acknowledge the work that remains to be done even as we appreciate the successes and advancements accomplished. Through education, equitable chances, and the demolition of stereotypes, we may establish a society in which each woman is enabled to realize her whole potential. To create a more fair and just future for all, let's unite to support women's empowerment.
