There has been demonstrable progress in women’s regional workforce engagement and success, with women taking the lead in many key economic sectors. However, women continue to be underrepresented despite this progress, and it is evident that organisations and their stakeholders must take charge to facilitate meaningful change and support women at work.

Led by by PwC Middle East D&I Leader Norma Taki, industry leaders and regional experts united for a workshop on the concerns that affect women in the workforce across the Gulf Region, and the solutions that can be implemented to support women’s career and economic advancement. 

Topics that were discussed included: 

  • The latest findings on women’s experiences in the regional workforce, 
  • Contemporary factors that impact women at work, and 
  • The strategic solutions that can be implemented by organisations to support women at all career stages.
