Arabian Ethicals supports International Women’s Day
Arabian Ethicals, a leading distributor of pharmaceutical brands in UAE and the Gulf region has shown their support for the international drive for gender equality in the workplace with a promising gesture of their own.
International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity and the race is on to build a more gender-balanced world. #BalanceforBetter
As a proud supporter of the happy occasion that is International Women’s Day 2019 – 8th of March, Arabian Ethicals was delighted to publicly commit to the diversification of their workforce with a promise to double the number of women in their team by the end of 2020.
General Manager Stephan Stauffer has set the benchmark at 25, more than double the number of 12 women out of 100 people currently working in offices and distribution centers across in the country.
“Of course it’s by no means a limit, it’s just a start! Arabian Ethicals stands by our commitment to support the UAE Vision 2021 to achieve world-class healthcare for everyone, with a team that represents all cultures and genders. We cannot change the world, but we can make it a better place with every lady we hire!”
Along with gender equity, the company is also working hard to be more inclusive of local talent with a continuous hire-drive seeking out Emirati personnel to fill positions in every level of the business.
The day provides an important and exciting opportunity to celebrate women’s achievements, raise awareness, and reinforce commitment to diversity and inclusion. To prepare for the event, the ladies of Arabian Ethicals team gathered together in front of the Burj Khalifah to show their support and welcome potential talent into the company.
Arabian Ethicals currently employs people from 16 countries, speaking more than ten different languages with ages ranging from 28 years to 60. One might say they’re already ahead of the game.
