Emirati women dominate banking sector in UAE
Emirati women constitute 70% of the total national workforce in the banking sector in UAE. Jamal Al Jasmi, general manager, Emirates Institute for Banking and Financial Studies, said this has been the result of continued encouragement and support from the UAE’s leadership. He said the vision and constant encouragement of the country’s leaders, including the UAE president Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan and other leaders and policy makers of the government, inspire every woman of the country to play their role in the country’s economic progress. UAE’s banking sector employs 10000 UAE nationals.
