Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre celebrates International Women’s Day


Over 50 of the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre’s (the Centre) team members dressed in purple, white and green (2019 IWD colours) and enjoyed a walk around the lush 50-acre Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) park to mark the recent International Women’s Day (IWD).

The stroll was followed by a casual high tea for team members to mingle, bond and celebrate the occasion.

The Centre focused on being proud on this special day and themed their activities, including specially crafted food and beverage and décor, to match the 2019 IWD theme. All digital screens around the venue also displayed a celebratory message marking IWD.

According to the Centre’s Director of Global Business Development & Marketing, Angeline van den Broecke, “It was great to see such an excellent turnout from our team members to mark this special day. As an organisation, we are committed to celebrating Malaysia’s cultural diversity and demonstrating this through equal representation across the workforce.”

“Celebrating IWD is a wonderful way to pay tribute to women we admire and respect all around the world, and also to those present in our daily lives who are actively driving initiatives and forums in this regard. #BalanceforBetter is a very appropriate theme this year as there is such a universal need for more active adoption of gender balance and for us to acknowledge initiatives that have brought important issues to the fore such as #MeToo and #TimesUp.

“We all need to find ways to assist in contributing to awareness and education on equality, in the workplace, and in social and domestic environments.”
