Januarie is proud to serve as a National Park Ranger

Tag Template - News Hub PRO CoinGenius Hosts Virtual Crypto Event The Road To Mass Adoption

SARAWAK, Malaysia, Apr 13, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - A deep interest in forestry prompted Januarie Kulis, 37, to turn this field into a career. She has been the Niah National Park Ranger since 2011, and has never regretted leaving the city's busy atmosphere and making flora and fauna as her 'office'.

Born in Sibu, Sarawak, Januarie is a graduate in Bachelor of Forestry Science from Universiti Putra Malaysia and has been with the Sarawak Forestry Corporation since 2006.

As park ranger, Januarie is responsible for managing overall field operations at Niah National Park including protection and conservation, management and eco-tourism.

"When I graduated from university, I chose to work in this field. I wanted to be a part of the process of conservation and protection of this treasure. Now, I have the opportunity to be directly involved in conserving and protecting the invaluable natural world."

While this career seems tough and far from the perception of every woman's dream job, Januarie never considered her job as a challenge because she was doing the job she loved.

For Januarie, many valuable memories and experiences can be enjoyed that may not be available through other careers. She is able to meet and engage with different communities through the programmes conducted.

"Many tourists think that all national parks in Sarawak are the same until they visit every national park in the state. Each national park in Sarawak has its own value and provides a different experience for each visitor.

"In Niah National Park, there are four significant attractions, which are archaeological historical sites, swiftlet nests (sarang burung walit), limestone and biodiversity," she said.

Niah Cave is in the hinterland of Miri, Sarawak and has been gazetted as a historic site under the authority of the Sarawak Museum and located within the Niah National Park which is protected by the National Park and Nature Reserve Ordinance.

Januarie said that due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Niah National Park had to be closed for a period of time. However, they are ready to reopen the national park with stricter Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) in compliance with the recommendations of the Ministry of Health Malaysia (MOH).

"The tourism industry plays an important role in connecting this national park with the public as well as generating economic income. National parks can provide many benefits in terms of physical, spiritual and mental."

"Those who love nature will be able to enjoy peace at this park. Eco-tourism has many benefits and can build a healthy society," she said.

Eco-tourism is one of the main themes of tourism activities in Sarawak. Now, many city dwellers have begun to appreciate the values of nature as a therapeutic tool to get away from the congestion of city life.

The flora and fauna found in Sarawak is unique and has an undeniable diversity, both for researchers and the general public. Iconic species such as orangutans, rafflesia flowers and a variety of habitats provide an exciting experience for tourists.

Meanwhile, according to a Sarawak Forestry Corporation (SFC) spokesperson, efforts to make Gua Niah National Park recognised as a World Heritage Site by the United Nations Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organization (UNESCO) is underway.

"Niah National Park has been listed in the category of 'MIXED PROPERTIES' which means it has both advantages in terms of nature and culture that can be highlighted and has the opportunity to compete with other candidates in the world," she said.

Challenging Personal Stereotypes in Spotlight at Women Icons Network Collective for Equality Summit

Tag Template - News Hub PRO CoinGenius Hosts Virtual Crypto Event The Road To Mass Adoption

Singapore, Mar 25, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Their gender itself is reason enough for much of the corporate world to be biased against women. However, working women face all kinds of subtle and overt biases as they navigate their way through their careers. From their age to choosing to be a mother, anything could be the basis of unconscious biases. The need to talk about, address and overcome such biases formed the basis of the discussion during the first virtual session of the Collective for Equality Summit on earlier on Thursday evening.

Tag Template - News Hub PRO CoinGenius Hosts Virtual Crypto Event The Road To Mass Adoption

Hosted by Singapore-based Women Icons Network (WIN) to mark the International Women's Day, the two-day summit aims to bring senior corporate leaders from Asia-Pacific on the same stage to discuss their personal experiences, the current state of the gender equality initiatives and the way forward. The topic for the first day was "Breaking The Bias - Challenging Personal Stereotypes". The session was moderated by WIN founder director Vishwesh Iyer, and the panelists were Malayasia based strategy, innovation and leadership consultant Dr Marcella Lucas, head of corporate sales of Google Cloud for Singapore-Malaysia, Sophie Wong and general manager of Cornerstone Global Partners, Tricia Liverpool.

Welcoming the panelists and attendees, Vishwesh stressed the need to have such conversations all around the year, and not wait for International Women's Day to have them. He asked Sophie about her experience with personal biases and stereotypes. She remembers that when she entered the tech industry a decade ago, the awareness or conversation regarding systemic prejudices or unconscious bias was non-existent. She remembers often being told to behave and dress older than her age to gain respect of clients and colleagues.

Through her career, she has worked with Fortune 500 companies in multiple domains. Over the years, she has seen the perspective of equality being at the core of an organisation develop. She is especially hopeful that the age-related biases are all but rooted out today, especially with so many startup founders being very young. Now, most organisations do not bring gender, age, religion, culture and other such factors during the hiring process.

For Marcella, the one bias she has had to fight in recent years has been to fight the perception that working out of a small village on the beach does not mean that she is "beach bumming". In fact, fighting this bias has led her to put in more hours in work and be online throughout the workday. Employees who opt to work from home, especially women, are thought to give more attention to children and domestic responsibilities, even when they are equally productive Nas their other colleagues, she pointed out.

As companies move towards a hybrid work environment, the idea that remote or flexible working can be equally productive needs to be reinforced, she believes. The questions that needs to be answered here is whether people really want to go back to the offices, and what kind of support they need to transition from remote working to going back to offices.

Tricia feels that biases have followed her all her life. She recalls an incident where an Australian company she was working for asked not to wear a short skirt. She chose to resign the very same day. Being an expatriate for most of her career, most people thought she was a trailing partner even when she had a flourishing career. People have directly asked her how she would lead a team being an expatriate female, and a "soft" person.

As a recruitment specialist, she often comes across clients who give her a specific list of traits that they are looking for in new hires. They even give specifications like the nationality and age of the candidates. She has often discouraged putting talents under such boxes. She encourages them to have a real conversation with the candidates to assess their personality and behaviours, to match the right person to their organisation.

Several pertinent topics like maternity and paternity leaves, breaking personal biases, supporting working mothers, unconscious gender bias in scientific and industry data were also discussed during the summit. All panelists agreed that having such conversations more regularly would help each of us overcome our own personal biases.

The winners of the Women Icons Asia Awards 2022 were also announced on the occasion.

Women Icons Network has been inspiring women to break the glass ceiling for more than five years by engaging in a conversation with women leaders and achievers. Women Icons Summits have been organised annually in Singapore & Malaysia since 2017. The online platform www.WomenIconsNetwork.com is focussed on precipitating the move towards gender equal places of work across the region.

Women Icons Network aims to be the largest data aggregation and analysis platform across South & South East Asia integrating objective feedback from women and published data on companies to create a Diversity Metric that differentiates workplaces around Gender Equity.

The Collective for Equality Summit & Women Icons Asia Awards 2022 are being supported by Atlas of CTH Group as the Gold Partner, ACN Newswire (www.acnnewswire.com) as News Distribution Partner, Supporting Network Partner, Women Entrepreneur Network - Hong Kong, On Target Media & Marketing Services as Digital Media Partner and AsiaBizToday as Media Partner.
