APPLICATION FOR WOMEN DIRECTORS PROGRAMME 2015

In June 2011, the Malaysian Government mandated a 30% target of women representation at senior decision-making and corporate boards by 2016. The Ministry of Women, Family and Community Development, through its agency NAM Institute for the Empowerment of Women (NIEW), has since introduced the Women's Directors Programme (WDP), which aims to prepare potential and qualified women for directorship roles in Malaysian public-listed companies.

 

The WDP comprises a comprehensive set of modules: online board readiness assessment, coaching on preparation for boards and training for boardroom knowledge and skills (both technical and softskills). Upon completion of the modules, these potential women candidates will go through a board simulation exercise that will familiarise them with the real-life challenges of serving on boards.

Women who meet the set criteria must first register themselves in the Women Corporate Directors' Registry (http://www.wcdregistry.com/). The Registry will serve several purposes. Besides capturing pertinent information of the skills, experience and leadership styles of the professional women, it will also support the placement process of board-ready candidates. Companies can also source for suitably qualified candidates for their boards through the Registry. Shortlisted candidates will be invited based on complete registration for the subsequent training modules.

For more information on the WDP programme, visit http://www.niew.gov.my . If you have any further queries regarding the initiative, please contact Mr Mazni Yahya at mazni@niew.gov.my.
