Zain Now Launches New Women Empowerment Network
A former news woman on two American television networks, Dieken is a five time Emmy Award winning journalist and the only woman to have been inducted into both the Radio/Television Broadcasters Hall of Fame and the Speakers Hall of Fame.
Dieken advises leaders at many of the world best known organizations on their influence strategies including Apple, HP, Nestle, and The Cleveland Clinic.
The company can not be considered progressive if it doesn’t identify and encourage all its various constituencies. And also given the massive contribution that women have already made to Zain’s success.
Lauding Dieken for her sound advice on leadership, Al-Kharafi Said:
As the topic of gender diversity has been on our corporate agenda for quite some time and yet. In this region we can observe only a marginal increase in women occupying senior roles. Therefore it is clear something is not working.
Further that the talent, creativity and passion women bring to their roles is undeniable and believe developing a program to initiate and measure actual progress achieved. Although in this respect over time will reap benefits not just for women with in Zain, but for the organization as a whole.
