At Alghanim Industries we have prioritized gender diversity internally and externally, continuously addressing topics pertaining to the recruitment, development and retention of female talent. We established a framework of policy and practices that have advanced Alghanim Industries’ recognition as one of the top companies for diversity in the region. Such initiatives include launching a nation-wide diversity survey, forming a Diversity and Inclusion Committee, and customizing different training and development programs for female employees. Additionally, we have introduced progressive policies such as extended maternity and miscarriage leave along with paternity leave to foster a healthy and balanced environment for employees.
Alghanim Industries also co-organized a gender diversity conference that hosted local and international guest speakers including our CEO Omar Alghanim, who highlighted in his keynote speech, our company’s commitment to female talent. In addition, we established the Alghanim Industries Women’s Network (AIWN), which provides our female employees with a solid platform to connect with peers, gain exposure, and promote opportunities for upward career mobility. We are proud to announce our partnership with the WMF, a non-profit organization that seeks to support and nurture the growth of women in the private sector, both entrepreneurs and professionals. This partnership is yet another testament to our commitment to empower working women by providing them with the necessary skill sets and knowledge to successfully excel in their careers.
