Dayana Mastura Baharudin, Maran Marimuthu


Purpose – This study investigates the impact of the two main determinants of strengthening the Board and Top Management Team through gender diversity contrasting between the pre and post MCCG 2017 era.

Design/methodology/approach – The study will employ the judgmental sampling method followed by descriptive statistics, regression analysis and quantitative content analysis derived from MCCG 2012 and MCCG 2017 as issued by the Malaysian Securities Commission together with prior research to analyse the annual reports in order to explore the reporting of gender diversity across the Board and Top Management Team.

Originality/value – This study is a systematic review of prior recent research developments in the Malaysian Securities Commission’s MCCG 2012 and MCCG 2017. The Board of Directors and Top Management Team scoring index could also be applied to other PLCs within the ASEAN oil and gas industry.
