Bechtel Launches Women’s Empowerment Initiative in Saudi Arabia

 

The program supports the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 goal to increase women’s participation in the workforce

 

RIYADH, Saudi ArabiaJuly 12, 2018  — Bechtel, a global leader in engineering, procurement and construction, has launched a pioneering women’s empowerment program in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Working with Al Khaleej Training and Education organization, the program aims to increase women’s participation in the country’s workforce through training and job placement of women with undergraduate degrees.

“Bechtel’s partnership with Al Khaleej Training and Education is grounded in 75 years of our commitment to Saudi Arabia and its people,” said Abdulrahman Al-Ghabban, Bechtel’s country manager. “Together, we are supporting the country’s Vision 2030 goal to increase women’s participation in the workforce to 30%. The Bechtel team in Saudi Arabia is honored to be part of this visionary effort in the country that is such an important part of our company’s 120-year history.”  Al-Ghabban noted that this is not Bechtel’s first workforce enhancement program in the Kingdom.  In 2017, the company began a partnership with Riyadh College of Technology to train and hire up to 75 students upon graduation.

The Women’s Empowerment program includes training courses in English language, information technology, and computer skills. The first group of candidates are scheduled to begin training in this fall.

Major infrastructure, industrial, and energy projects include development and expansion of Jubail and Ras Al Khair Industrial cities working with the Royal Commission of Jubail and Yanbu, King Khalid and King Fahd international airports in Riyadh and Dammam, and overseeing a major phosphate complex and industrial city for the Saudi Arabia Mining Company, Ma’aden.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
