WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND
Workplaces with cultures that inspire fear of speaking up are conducive to harassment and intimidation.
Compliance with workplace-safety legislation and the Human Rights Code are not the only compelling reasons for creating harassment-free workplaces; there is also a wide body of evidence showing that psychologically healthy companies have better bottom lines and exert a positive influence on employees’ physical and mental health, motivation and productivity.

In 2019, LeadWomen annual conference, It’s NOT OK?! puts the spotlight on a deep-rooted problem in the workspace – harassment, bullying and discrimination! While this happens to both women and men, statistics show that the majority of these victims are women, and that many such incidences are not reported. Why? Because power dynamics, “blame the victim” culture and whistleblowers are seen as the problem.
Looking back on 2018, it was a year of progress for women as they stood together in the unprecedented #MeToo movement to expose sexual harassment and assault in the workplace. However, the backlash to the movement is detrimental to women’s careers as men are starting to avoid women in the workplace, hence limiting the opportunities for women to further their career growth.
LeadWomen, in collaboration with our partners and Subject Matter Experts, have co-created unique content that has started to provide a 360 perspective of workplace harassment through the lenses of culture, gender, psychology and the law. We have started to address workplace harassment and in 2020, we will continue the conversation as IT’ (still) NOT OK!

From an informal group started in 2011, KLSP has established itself as the only theatre company in Malaysia that takes shows beyond Kuala Lumpur and Penang, to campuses in Langkawi, Ipoh, Kuala Kangsar, Seremban, Johor Bahru, Kuching and Kota Kinabalu. Each year, we draw a diverse audience to watch Shakespeare performed live. We do so without running away from the Bard’s language. It is our mission to take Shakespeare to every state in Malaysia, and eventually to all countries in Southeast Asia.
Starting from 2018, apart from Shakespeare, we now offer another form of powerful theatre, called Exchange Theatre, aimed at stimulating discussion on various issues connected to local communities. In total, for 2018 we have performed over 90 shows all over Malaysia and travelled to Manila and Seoul. Besides shows, we are active in providing training and workshops to students from universities, colleges, international and national schools, to increase their appreciation of the Bard, or to improve their communication skills, or to explore various aspects of stagecraft.
