André Sayegh
GROUP CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER, FAB

“From the early days of the UAE’s establishment, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan set the foundations of female empowerment and equality in the country. Today, FAB is committed to continue that path by promoting diversity across the board, showcasing women’s expertise and accomplishments and building a brighter future for women in the region. Female empowerment is a longstanding pillar of our nation’s vision for economic diversification and development, and together we will pave the way for a new era of female accomplishments in the next 50 years. As a partner of the ‘Pathway20 initiative, it is our duty to nurture and support female talent in their journey to leadership and, as a result, grow stronger together.”

Arif Amiri
CEO, DIFC

“DIFC has championed gender diversity and inclusivity since establishing operations 16 years ago. During this time, we have built a reputation for accelerating women into senior positions. DIFC’s three independent bodies continue to have strong female reputation in their management teams. To stay ahead, there is more we can do with the industry and other partners. Over 60% of DIFC Authority staff and 33% of people working in the region’s largest financial centre ecosystem are female, meaning the pipeline for board positions is tremendous.”
