RAISING WOMEN'S PARTICIPATION: Both should engage in discussions on shared goals, says Raja Nazrin

KUALA LUMPUR: THE Regent of Perak Raja Dr Nazrin Shah has called on women to get men involved   in their diversity programmes so that they can work together in joint endeavours.


"It is essential to include more men in such programmes so that they will have an insight into the views, ideas and suggestions of women," he said during a luncheon at the Global Summit of Women 2013 here yesterday.


He said the "us against them" mentality practised by some gender-biased parties was harmful to organisations, regardless of the professions involved.


"The result of not recognising women in an organisation is grave and the head of every organisation should realise this.


"Therefore, it is important for men and women to both engage in discussions on shared goals and interests."


Raja Nazrin, who was speaking on the topic, "Engaging men in diversity programmes", said at present, almost all such programmes involved only women.


"In order to spread their thoughts and increase their opportunities, women should consider having men, who are able to come up with influential policies, in such programmes.


"The participation of women is still lacking in many areas. Many organisations still consider their participation as an option.

"A lot more needs to be done in order to improve women's participation."


Raja Nazrin said women already played a vital role in the education and health sectors, and were broadening their scope in sectors such as science and technology, business and finance.


The summit, which began at Shangri-La Hotel here on Thursday, ended yesterday. It was attended by 1,100 representatives.

The aim of the summit was to encourage and ensure the continuous development and promotion of women in all areas. It was led by its president, Irene Natividad.


Present during the event was Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak's wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.
