Women must make 30% of decision makers

Women must make 30% of decision makersThe Malaysian Prime Minister announced this week the goal of having women comprise at least 30% of private sector corporate decision making jobs by 2016.  While women of course account for more than 50% of the Malaysian population, the Central Bank estimates that women account for only 6% of decision makers in the financial world.

The Prime Minister pointed out that the government set a similar goal for public sector management positions with great success.  In 2004, when the policy was implemented, women accounted for only 18% of decision-making, or department-leading, positions.  Now, they account for over 32% of major jobs.  The Ministry of Finance will work with other agencies to ensure women have the proper training they need for their upcoming promotions.
