The session will be absolutely free of charge and open to anyone keen to learn more about the opportunities for women who are pursuing careers in tech.

Maxis Chief Human Resources Officer Natalia Navin says that the company has always encouraged women to #breakthebias and feel empowered to thrive in this digital era.

As a signatory company of the United Nations Women Empowerment Principles (UN WEPs), she explains that Maxis remains committed to empowering women as part of its holistic efforts to support all Malaysians through its Rangkaian Kita, Rangkaian Malaysia campaign.

She shared that the company has always gone beyond serving its consumers and businesses by extending multiple initiatives to support all communities in the country, including women, students and B40 families.

Among its efforts for women include the eKelas Usahawan programme, in which Maxis has already trained over 1,000 women entrepreneurs to help develop a stronger digital presence, with a target to train even more this year through webinars and partnerships with NGOs and government agencies.

In addition, Maxis has its annual scholarship programme which includes supporting outstanding women to pursue their studies in tech fields.

As a home-grown Malaysian brand, we know the importance of having equal representation in our workforce to ensure that we deliver the best for our customers. We are excited to host this upcoming discussion with our partners, which celebrates diversity and a forward-thinking mindset in a meaningful way.
