LHAG’s International Women’s Day Event
In conjunction with International Women’s Day on 8 March, Lee Hishammuddin Allen & Gledhill organised an afternoon talk, “Women in Law: Challenges & Perspectives”. The event, which sought to highlight the accomplishments and successes of women in the legal sphere, was officiated by Royal Patron and guest of honour, DYMM Tunku Ampuan Besar Negeri Sembilan Darul Khusus Tuanku Aishah Rohani binti Almarhum Tengku Besar Mahmud. DYTM Raja Puan Muda Kedah Che Puan Muda Zaheeda Mohamad Ariff was among the more than 200 guests — mostly members of the legal fraternity — who attended the event held at the Hilton Kuala Lumpur.
The talk comprised a lively and engaging panel discussion introduced by partner Eunice Chan Wei Lynn, while partner Ooi Bee Hong acted as moderator. The panellists consisted of former ambassador and social activist, Dato’ Noor Farida Mohd Ariffin; independent director of various PLCs, Dato’ Zuraidah binti Atan; Negri Sembilan Exco member Nicole Tan Lee Koon; and general counsel of AIA Berhad as well as director of the Ombudsman for Financial Services, Datin Veronica Selvanayagy.
The forum was unique as it was conceptualised by S Saravana Kumar, a male partner with the firm’s Tax, SST & Customs Practice.
