“Working with Project Kal on various projects for the Dubai Business Women Council in relation to gender parity has been a great privilege.
Their passion for the subject resonates in their dedication to participate in various platforms that help identify and resolve the challenges behind it. They are a great advocate of this topic who have been very eager and active to create awareness around it and find ways to discuss the solutions for creating a more sustainable gender balanced workplace.
