"The process of empowering Emirati women, launched by the Founding Fathers, has made qualitative and inspiring achievements. Thanks to the continuous support of the wise leadership of President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan and His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, Emirati women have become an essential partner in the renaissance of the UAE and its prosperity," said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA.

We also strive to harness the capabilities of our female employees in scientific and practical areas to achieve success and excellence. This enhances their active participation in serving and developing the nation in all fields. The number of female employees reached 1,950 in all our divisions. This number includes 785 female employees in the engineering and technical sector, while 321 female employees occupy leadership positions. Emirati female employees constitute 83 percent of the total female workforce at DEWA," he added.
