KIB spon­sors ‘Ex­pand Your Suc­cesses’ fe­male em­pow­er­ment con­fer­ence

Kuwait Times - - FROM THE ARABIC PRESS -

In line with the Bank’s ef­forts to pro­mote fe­male em­pow­er­ment across all sec­tors, Kuwait In­ter­na­tional Bank (KIB) re­cently spon­sored Safira CSR Com­pany’s Con­fer­ence en­ti­tled ‘Ex­pand Your Suc­cesses: Com­mon Fac­tors of Suc­cess­ful Women’.

Fo­cus­ing on fe­male em­pow­er­ment, the con­fer­ence was de­signed to pro­vide a plat­form for in­dus­trylead­ing suc­cess­ful women to share their per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ences, in an ef­fort to high­light how tal­ented women can grow and ex­cel in their fields of choice. It also aimed to en­cour­age tal­ented young women to pur­sue their pro­fes­sional goals and am­bi­tions across all sec­tors and in­dus­tries.

The con­fer­ence fea­tured the par­tic­i­pa­tion of a num­ber of high-pro­file, in­flu­en­tial fe­male fig­ures from both Kuwait and the re­gion. Key­note speak­ers in­cluded Hind Al Sabeeh, Min­is­ter of Plan­ning and So­cial Af­fairs, and Sheikha Al-Zain Al-Sabah, Un­der­sec­re­tary of the Min­istry of State for Youth Af­fairs, in ad­di­tion to a num­ber of no­table busi­ness lead­ers, en­trepreneurs, and ac­tivists.

“KIB has al­ways en­deav­ored to lend its sup­port to lo­cal ini­tia­tives and pro­grams that aim to pro­mote fe­male em­pow­er­ment within our com­mu­nity. This stems from our deep-rooted be­lief that women play a vi­tal role in pro­mot­ing the eco­nomic devel­op­ment and over­all ad­vance­ment of the coun­try, and it is cru­cial that we as a so­ci­ety of­fer them all the sup­port and en­cour­age­ment they need in or­der to best carry out this role,” said Nawaf Na­jia, Man­ager of the Cor­po­rate Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Unit at KIB.

He fur­ther added: “As a na­tional in­sti­tu­tion, we are ex­tremely proud to have wit­nessed the great ac­com­plish­ments Kuwaiti women have achieved over the past few years. We are also supremely con­fi­dent that young fe­male tal­ents in this coun­try are poised to re­al­ize even greater lev­els of suc­cess and ex­cel­lence in the busi­ness world, and in any field or in­dus­try they choose to en­ter.”

KIB’s spon­sor­ship of the ‘Ex­pand Your Suc­cesses’ Con­fer­ence comes un­der the um­brella of the Bank’s ex­ten­sive and in­clu­sive so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity pro­gram. The in­dus­trylead­ing pro­gram aims to sup­port and spon­sor ac­tiv­i­ties and ini­tia­tives which aim to pro­mote devel­op­ment across all ar­eas in Kuwait. The bank is es­pe­cially fo­cused on en­cour­ag­ing and fos­ter­ing young lo­cal tal­ents, pro­vid­ing them with the sup­port they need to achieve their am­bi­tions and goals, and en­abling them to play an ac­tive and pos­i­tive role in na­tional devel­op­ment.
