ABU DHABI, February 5, 2017

UPS, a global logistics leader, has signed a sponsorship agreement with the American Chamber of Commerce Abu Dhabi (AmCham Abu Dhabi) while continuing to support the Women in Business Committee to explore professional development platforms in the UAE.

As an official sponsor, UPS will fund events, workshops and personal development opportunities and deliver on the key ideals of AmCham Abu Dhabi’s Women Achieve initiative.

“We are honoured to work alongside AmCham Abu Dhabi to further our shared vision of women’s development in the region. UPS pledges to provide greater opportunities for women’s participation in training and career advancement, and have made this a key part of our diversity strategy,” said Esther Ndichu, director of public affairs for UPS in the Indian Subcontinent, Middle East and Africa region.  

“We are keen to work together on innovative projects that foster a positive change in the business community, especially in the region, and continue to grow the 30 per cent of our management and specialist positions that are held by women,” Ndichu said.

“AmCham Abu Dhabi thanks UPS’ team and its leadership for the continued support of the Women in Business Committee,” said Sharief Fahmy, chairman, AmCham Abu Dhabi. “We are steadfast and will continue to support current and future women leaders, enabling them to advance in their professional careers. We look forward to working closely with UPS in shedding light on the importance of a diverse and inclusive workforce.”

 UPS recognises diversity and inclusion are core drivers for business growth throughout the world. Through this partnership, UPS will empower women in the region to advance professionally and scale greater heights. The company is especially keen to see an increasing number of females in more senior positions, which will be done via a range of training sessions, coaching, and mentorship programs. UPS reassures its commitment to the Women Achieve program, and providing a work environment favorable to women’s development. The company empowers women by allowing them to refine their leadership skills and flourish in their respective jobs and areas of expertise, said the statement. – TradeArabia News Service
