The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (the Centre) is at the forefront of employing and developing female staff. Currently 52% of its Managers are women. In total the Centre employs 145 women, of which 79 hold executive to senior managerial positions despite residing in a perceived male dominated business events industry. Celebrating this fact and to mark the recent International Women’s Day, the Centre organised a series of focused activities for its female team members. These included a Work–Life Integration Talk by BFM Radio Host, Freda Liu and a Health Talk by Dr Juliet Mathew from Hospis, Malaysia. According to the Centre’s Director of Sales & Marketing, Angeline van den Broecke, “Developing our team members has always been at the forefront of our professional education goals as we constantly strive to be an ‘Employer of Choice’. The activities were open to all team members and formed part of the Centre’s ongoing effort to create an environment which inspires team members to advance their personal and professional aspirations regardless of gender. Our corporate culture is inclusive and mindful of the need to encourage all team members to advance their career aspirations. This enables us to retain a high calibre of professional women who are involved and demonstrate mentorship and inspiration, for our younger team members.”

Echoing van den Broecke’s comments, the Centre’s Director of Human Resources, Muhammad Vickneswaran shared that, “The Centre is renowned for its excellent service and our female employees make a large contribution to its achievements thus far and to the global business events industry. We take great pride in their achievements and recognise their contribution to the Centre’s success.
