Manama, October 14, 2012
Four ladies from Batelco’s general management team have been included in CommsMEA’s list of the top 50 female executives of the region.
Three of the seleted ladies hold general management roles at Batelco’s Bahrain operation. They are: General manager consumer division Muna Al Hashimi, human resources general manager Suhaila Alnowakhda and government relations general manager Nadia Hussain.
Batelco Group general counsel Bernadette Baynie was also featured on the top 50 Powerlist, said a statement.
Traditionally, the region’s telecoms industry has been dominated by men, but in recent years there have been increasing signs of a significant shift taking place, as more and more women are promoted into leadership roles at leading telecommunications companies.
“Batelco is proud that a significant percentage of its workforce are ladies, with several of them holding executive roles and leading various critical and complex functions,” it said.
Batelco Group general manager media relations Ahmed Al Janahi said that diversity in experiences, lateral thinking, entrepreneurship, professionalism and articulate communication skills are in abundance across the company’s female executives.
“We are immensely proud that we have a wealth of talented females in our company, and that the number of them in senior roles continues to rise. A significant number of female employees are also being groomed to become Batelco’s future leaders across the company,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
