PETALING JAYA: Malaysia must take the lead in addressing challenges involving integrity and corporate governance, says Women’s Institute of Management (WIM) CEO Datuk Nellie Tan-Wong.

“These challenges are not just a Malaysian problem, they are a global problem.

“So, we must take the lead in Asean to push for better corporate governance and integrity,” she said.

This month, WIM will hold its first conference on integrity and governance, targeted at senior management officers and company directors from the public and private sectors.

“Malaysia has been facing allegations of corruption and poor governance practices, so the conference seeks to bring together representatives from the public and private sectors, university academics and intellectuals to discuss the issues.

The keynote addresses will be delivered by prominent speakers, such as former deputy prime minister Tun Musa Hitam, Auditor-General Tan Sri Ambrin Buang, former Economic Planning Unit director-general Tan Sri Dr Sulaiman Mahbob and former Bank Negara assistant governor Datuk Latifah Merican Cheong.

Companies which contribute to the Human Resources Development Fund can attend the conference for free if they register with the fund before the conference.

“The conference is a unique attempt by WIM to draw feedback from four sectors: government, private, NGOs and professionals,” said Tan-Wong.

WIM will submit its findings to the Government, she added.

Started in 1993, WIM is a non-profit women’s NGO that provides skills training for women and is one of the largest MBA degree providers in Kuala Lumpur.

The conference takes place at the One World Hotel here on Nov 21 and 22.
