ABOUT THE EVENT
Women, Talent & the Halal Lifestyle – how do they tie together?
The Halal market is worth more than USD 2.0 trillion and one of the most promising sub-sectors in the world today. With an estimated Muslim consumer base of 1.8 billion, making up to one fourth of the world’s population, the demand for halal products and services is overwhelming.
Lifestyle, refers to our everyday way of life that incorporates the different principles, values and standards of living we have delineated for our lives. Being halal-conscious and halal-savvy is actually the springboard to an optimal and cordial lifestyle-choice. The halal concept goes far beyond the food industry and applies to the daily lives of Muslims and non-Muslims.
A growing industry without talent is simply said, asset-poor. The Malaysian talent pool is rich with young, educated and productive workers with skills necessary for science- and service-based industries. Business owners who plan to grow and embark into the halal industry must first develop a pool of halal talent within to ensure a successful transition. The goal is to develop a sustainable pool of knowledge workers and professionals for the halal industry.
A major contributor to the halal lifestyle economy, are actually women. We aim to drive women to be more than just consumers, but to place both hands on the wheel and drive the halal lifestyle economy through their entrepreneurial spirit.
Therefore, our objective is to close the gaps in developing talent within the halal economy, while focusing on women entrepreneurs in the Halal Lifestyle Economy
