Breaking the bias together

Baiduri Bank hosted a virtual event titled ‘Glow Up Friday: Women Empowerment Event 2022’ yesterday, in conjunction with International Women’s Day to not only promote financial education among women, but also to empower them to help other women break the bias by offering support and letting other women ‘lean in’.

On top of a financial planning segment conducted by Baiduri Bank Wealth Management Manager Siti Aminah binti Haji Abdul Rahman, the event also had a segment on women and strength training by fitness coach and 673 Jerudong co-owner Liyana Sidek, followed by a segment on supporting new mothers at work, delivered by trained facilitator and community and youth worker Rasyidah Samah.

Over 90 individuals attended the event, which featured live performances by local artistes Fatin Muzini and Azzniel Yunus.

“As a financial institution committed to fostering diversity and inclusion, it is one of our objectives to help individuals break the barriers that prevent them from succeeding financially.

“Platforms such as these not only raise awareness on the importance of financial literacy for women, but also provide opportunities and drive conversations around how women can thrive, grow and contribute positively to their respective communities,” said Baiduri Bank Group Strategic Marketing and Communications Head Ng Yick Wei.
