AWL together with the Malaysian Bar organised a "Workshop on Leveraging Leadership" on 13.1.2015. The workshop focused on the concept of "respect" between one another, particularly with relation to gender equality. Participants were reminded that everyone is a leader, and that respect is the most fundamental characteristic in leadership. Many of them left with new insights and knowledge about the difference between gender and sex, the different categories of discrimination based on gender, and ways to deal with sexual harassment.
