Empowering Women in Defence & Security


Recently at the DSA 2018 exhibition, the Defense Adviser to Malaysia, GCAPT Wendy Horder, was invited to speak at the “Empowering Women in Defence & Security Forum” with the theme of “Women Leadership In Defence And Security: Breaking The Glass Ceiling”, which was aimed at highlighting women holding key positions in the defence and security sector as they come together to discuss the current and future role of women in the field as well as the challenges they face.

This conference is the nation’s new forum to promote the participation of women in the defence and security sector and to inspire women to seek their highest level of personal and professional growth by presenting participants with role models, varying perspectives and strategies for development. The conference provided participants with first-hand information through speakers’ personal experiences, anecdotes and motivations on how to thrive and climb the leadership ladder. This conference was aimed at anyone who is interested in participation and the creation of women leaders in defence and security sectors.
