Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Talent Enterprise, the award-winning global leader in human resource technology, based in the UAE, has launched a new partnership with DHL Express, the world-renowned logistics company. This came after the two companies designed the latest version of their core regional program, Women in Leadership 2022, which aims to support the next generation of female leaders at DHL..
The detailed four-month program is designed based on research on diversity and inclusion issues highlighted in the book. “Game Modifiers”And after using the latest data about this promising field.

We look forward to hosting the program this year in the UAE, especially as it addresses the topic of leadership from the perspective of inclusion and gender balance and highlights key areas of work that have emerged after years of research, in particular, challenges, barriers and enabling factors. that have been valued with the help of women to discover the limits of their true potential. Our research also removes the cover of the unique paradoxes of most “emerging markets” and many “developed countries”, the loss of 50% of the female workforce during the labor transition. Therefore, in partnership with DHL, we seek to limit the spread of this phenomenon, as well as prepare women leaders with the right skills to lead the future.“.
Talent Enterprise research has shown that although female graduates make up 60% of the total graduates, they make up only 30-40% of the workforce. These percentages fall to 15% in managerial positions, from 7 to 8% in management positions and only 3 to 4% in board positions. This is an issue of particular concern and should be a strong incentive for companies to attract, develop and retain female talent, especially in critical transitions.
