In a resolute commitment to champion diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), plus-sized women are seizing the spotlight, reshaping societal perspectives. The Women’s Empowerment Symposium, a pivotal element of the Miss Plus World Malaysia 2023/24 event, celebrates the invaluable contributions, talents, and distinctive viewpoints of curvy women while striving to forge a more inclusive and equitable world.

The Women’s Empowerment Symposium, with a particular focus on Body Positivity, aims to serve as a platform for meaningful conversations, the exchange of knowledge, and empowerment. Its mission is to heighten awareness and educate on the significance of embracing diversity and inclusion. Participants will engage in enlightening discussions, hands-on workshops, and illuminating presentations, all underscoring the importance of embracing diversity in its many forms.

This event is designed to boost self-assurance and create an environment of empowerment for individuals of all backgrounds. It’s a chance to revel in diversity, break down barriers, and make substantial strides toward a more just and inclusive world.


A Paradigm Shift in the Making:

For too long, conventional beauty standards have cast a narrow and exclusionary shadow over the lives of plus-sized women. But times are changing, and this movement seeks to challenge and redefine these standards to pave the way for a brighter, more accepting future.


Key Elements of the Forum

  • Promoting Self-Acceptance : At the heart of Forum is the promotion of self-acceptance and body positivity among plus-sized women. It encourages individuals to embrace and love their bodies, regardless of societal pressures
  • Amplifying Voices : The importance of giving voice to plus-sized women is emphasized and a platform for them to share their stories, experiences, and perspectives to create a sense of belonging and empowerment is provided.
  • Challenging Stereotypes : It challenges and deconstructs harmful stereotypes and prejudices, fostering understanding and empathy.


The Way Forward

The Forum’s goal is to create a vision for a world where all women, including plus-sized women, are not judged by their appearance but rather celebrated for their unique qualities, abilities, and diverse perspectives. It aims to shift the narrative from exclusion to inclusion and from discrimination to empowerment.

The journey ahead may be challenging, but it is a journey worth undertaking. The collective commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, along with the empowerment of plus-sized women, will enrich society and lead to positive, lasting change.
