UNIQLO Celebrates International Women’s Day through “Drive, Daring, Destiny” Women Empowerment Workshop

  In conjunction with International Women’s Day, global apparel retailer UNIQLO, reaffirmed its commitment to empowering women and advancing gender equality by hosting an insightful dialogue session with local personalities. The session, themed “Drive, Daring, Destiny” represented a significant step towards fostering a culture of empowerment and resilience among women from all walks of life.

Partnering with the Women’s Aid Organisation (WAO), a non-governmental organisation for women's rights and gender equality in Malaysia, UNIQLO brought together influential women entrepreneurs and thought leaders to share their experiences and insights. Local personality, Bella Zahir, and Amy Tai, founder of the local footwear brand, joined representatives from WAO in leading the dialogue.


The session delved into various aspects of women’s empowerment, including navigating challenges, seizing opportunities, and prioritising mental well-being. By showcasing the achievements and journeys of successful women, the dialogue aimed to inspire and empower others to pursue their goals with confidence.


“In celebrating International Women’s Day, we recognize the vital role women play in shaping our society and economy. These dialogue sessions serve as a platform to amplify their voices, celebrate their achievements, and address the challenges they face. By fostering a supportive community and providing opportunities for dialogue and mentorship, we aim to empower women to realize their full potential,” said Alwiyah Alhadad, Marketing Director of UNIQLO Malaysia.
