Female Emerging Leaders Technical Development


The UN Women project, “Female Emerging Leaders Technical Development”, aimed to design and implement a Career and Professional Development Program that targeted 30 selected employees at Social Security Investment Fund staff (SSIF) by strengthening their capacity on gender equality and gender diversity.

The project aimed to support leaders to use best corporate practices and gender inclusive transformative principles, skills and actions to address skills gaps and institutional gender biases and promote private and public sectors’ commitments to gender equality in Jordan. The program was dedicated to build the technical capacity of male SSIF staff on gender and gender diversity.

The project consisted of 4 online training modules that addressed introduction to gender, gender diversity practices at corporates and board’s members roles in enhancing gender equality and gender diversity. The training project was conducted virtually using Zoom technologies.

This project is considered as part of ASK commitment to gender equality in Jordan and across the MENA region. Women in Jordan and across the region form 50% of the population at the same time less than 20% of the labor force. Economic development and progress both in the public and private sectors will not be achieved unless women representation in the labor force expresses the actual percentage of women in the total population said Dr. Amin Amin CEO of ASK Arabia.
