The airline's programme is designed to develop female Emirati leaders
As part of the Emiratisation strategy, a commitment to developing Emirati talent, the Emirates Group has recently partnered with INSEAD, one of the most prominent business schools in the world, to offer its Emirati senior executives a chance to enrol in the Women Leaders Programme.
The four-day programme will bring female Emirati leaders on a peer learning journey with women leaders from other global organisations. It aims to provide participants with broader perspectives on the global workplace, marketplace and leadership challenges, and provide them with the insights, tools and a network to increase their leadership impact and contribution to the professional community.
Emirati women in the Emirates Group represent a workforce of over 1,000 professionals in various roles across more than 30 departments.
From pilots and engineers who work with the world’s biggest commercial aircraft, to IT professionals, service ambassadors, and marketing and data experts and more, talented Emirati women are vital contributors to the Emirates Group, as well as to the aviation and travel industries’ success and growth.
Thanks to support from UAE leadership, Emirati women continue to break the norms and defy the odds as they actively contribute to the socio-economic development of the UAE.
Reflecting the country’s robust educational policies and the Emirates Group’s commitment to female employees, more than half of the Emirati women employed by the Emirates Group are in supervisory, managerial or leadership positions.
