This podcast we have Daniel Cerventus, Curator and licensee of TEDxKL and Ann Ibrahim, certified midwife and one of the speaker in TEDxKLwomen. Daniel shared on TED and the growth of TEDx in Malaysia and Ann talked on what she will be sharing this Saturday.
Here’s a snapshot on TEDxKLwomen:
In our society today, there exist gaps between us Malaysians, due to our difference in cultural backgrounds, generations, genders or any number of things that divide us. While these gaps may be cause for miscommunication and conflict, they equally offer us different perspectives of reality, thus adding to the exciting diversity of life.
At this year’s TEDxKLwomen, we will hear from our distinguished speakers as they explore those gaps in society vis-à-vis the theme, The Space Between, and what can be or is being done to address them. While the women speakers will approach their subjects through the prism of being a woman in Malaysia today, the men will offer counterbalance views from their perspective as the opposite sex.
This TEDxKLwomen’s instalment will include speakers such as:
Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir: a gender equality activist and the daughter of a former Prime Minister who works
to increase awareness of the protection of women’s rights in Islam.
Aireen and Ahmad Izham Omar: siblings and CEOs at major Malaysian companies who will compare and discuss on-stage her and his style of corporate management.
Issa Cuevas-Santos: a missionary who works to develop communities among the desperately poor with Gawad Kalinga, a Philippine-based foundation dedicated to eradicating poverty.
Nora Murat: a Regional Director of International Planned Parenthood Federation with considerable experience in the NGO field, locally and abroad, in particular on women and human rights issues.
Ida Nerina: an actress, producer and director whose most recent work is the award winning double bill, APOCALYPSE & WHAT’LL BREAK YOU. She shares on the perceived notions of abilities and non-abilities.
Ann Ibrahim: a mother and certified midwife who has been practising for over a decade. She will examine the role of the midwife today when advanced surgical procedures are commonplace.
Mislina Mustaffa: an actress and social activist who has volunteered to live homeless on the streets to better empathise with people who are deprived of the basic securities of home.
Edwin Sumun: an acclaimed and award winning performing artist, comedian, director and producer talks about the illustrious career of Shelah, one of the most famous alter ego ever created.
