DUBAI AIRPORTS LAUNCHES INITIATIVE TO ATTRACT MORE EMIRATI WOMEN TO ITS WORKFORCE
Dubai Airports has launched a pioneering new career development programme aimed at attracting more Emirati women to join its workforce in management roles.
It claims that the move reaffirms its commitment to the nation’s female workforce as it wants women to play an important role in the future development of the UAE’s aviation industry.
Called the ‘Aspiring Women’s Programme’, the initiative is aimed at female Emirati managers and designed to develop high-performing Emirati women into the company’s future leaders.
Dubai Airports reveals that the nine-month programme will provide Emirati women with leadership coaching, workplace challenges, workshops and support in helping them build up their network across the organisation and wider airport community.
According to Dubai Airports, the programme supports the UAE’s national agenda to achieve gender balance in the workplace and become one of the world’s top 25 countries for gender equality.
The aviation sector is expected to support more than 750,000 jobs or just under a third of Dubai's workforce by 2020, according to Oxford Economics.
In the current intake of graduates, 76% of applicants are Emirati women, set to gain experience in various departments including human resources and development, finance, health and safety, and corporate assurance.
Ann-Marie Campbell, executive vice president of human resources and development at Dubai Airports, said: “We are delighted to launch our Aspiring Women Course, and believe this programme will harness the potential of the many dynamic Emirati women in our organisation.
