Airbus, DP World and Middlesex University Dubai collaborate to promote women empowerment


Airbus and DP World hosted a training session organised by DP World and the Institute of Sustainable Development at Middlesex University Dubai.  Dr Belisa Marochi, Head of the Institute designed and led the interactive session aimed at training 50 attendees representing over 25 companies on the UN Women Empowerment Principles (WEPs).

The session expanded on the principles of gender equality and encouraged companies to share ideas about how to design and implement initiatives to attract and retain women in male dominated industries.

“At Airbus we strongly believe in the positive impact of inclusion and diversity on innovation, performance and communities. We are a proud signatory of the Women Empowerment Principles (WEPs) and it was a great pleasure co-hosting with DP World their breakfast series to raise awareness about the WEPs and meet with peers who are engaged to do the same,” shares Hania Tabet, International Director for Responsibility & Sustainability at Airbus.

The 2-hour session on 22 February was part of the DPWorld4Women Breakfast series and was hosted by Airbus at the Dubai Airport Free Zone (DAFZA) at the Airbus offices.
