KUALA LUMPUR – Women should stop hiding behind closed doors, instead, they should be educated knowledgeable , virtuous, and add value to the country.
The wife of Selangor Menteri Besar, Masdiana Muhamad, said the role of women has now changed significantly from its traditional function.
“I would like to call on women to innovate themselves in line with the technology transition and national progress of the state through the innovation of the present state policy.”
“With the changing of times and current challenges, integrated efforts are needed to contribute to the success of women, which will in time lead to the success of the family institution,” she said.
She said this at the closing ceremony of the International Winning Women’s Day 2019 that was organised by ADLA Group Sdn Bhd (ADLA) at the Felda Perdana Hall, D ‘Saji Keramat, on 27 March.
Masdiana, who is also the President of the Women’s Welfare and Charity Organization of Selangor (Pekawanis), said the ADLA initiative is actively opening up space as a special platform for women to acquire knowledge and share information.
“I am optimistic that ADLA’s initiative will not stop here, but will continue to help women to be successful and to always move forward.”
“Hence, with the challenges we faced today, it requires us [women] to constantly explore and increase our knowledge, to innovate and to strive beyond the boundaries of excellence,” she said.
ADLA or “Advisory, Development, Learning & Achievement” is a training institution that focuses on women having a balanced work life by improving the skills of their workforce, corporate abilities, individual growth and entrepreneurship.
Established in January 2016 in Ampang, it was founded by Datin Dr Leez Hassan, an entrepreneur, author and mother of six children.
ADLA was launched when Dr Leez was decided to help women entrepreneurs learn and develop entrepreneurial knowledge in order to succeed in business and life.
