Established in November 2011, the Penang Women’s Development Corporation (PWDC) is a state-funded company set up with a vision towards a Penang which mainstreams gender into the policies and programmes of all sectors in order to achieve gender and social justice in the State. PWDC aims to ensure the transformation of Penang based on principles of substantive equality and good governance. Integral to its work is the recognition of women’s diverse identities, women’s representation in all spheres and the equitable redistribution of resources.

“PWDC envisions a Penang which mainstreams gender into the policies and programmes of all sectors to achieve gender and social justice in the State.”

Mission Statement

PWDC seeks to contribute to the transformation of Penang based on principles of substantive equality and good governance. Integral to our work is the recognition of women’s diverse identities, women’s representation in all spheres and the equitable redistribution of resources.

This will be achieved through research and advocacy on gender responsive policies, capacity development, strategic networking, and women’s empowerment programmes; working in smart partnership with all levels of the Penang state and local governments, non-governmental and community-based organisations, the academe, the private sector and the public.

Objectives

PWDC has five key objectives, namely:

To develop gender responsive policies and good governance;

To promote awareness and understanding of gender and social justice;

To enhance women’s participation in the socio-economic and political life of society;

To strengthen women’s leadership and decision making in all sectors of society; and

To enhance and promote an environment of inclusiveness within the multi-ethnic, multi-cultural and multi-       religious context of Penang

This will be achieved through research and advocacy on gender responsive policies (including gender responsive budgeting), capacity development, strategic networking, and women’s empowerment programmes; working in smart partnership with all levels of the Penang state and local governments, non-governmental and community-based organisations, the academe, the private sector and the public.
