On March 8, Aramco’s Diversity and Inclusion division hosted a virtual webinar in which leaders and professionals from around the world came together to discuss the main issues facing women in the workforce today with a focus on the unique barriers that exist within the oil and gas industry.
The event was planned to support the global efforts around International Women’s Day and take part in celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women.
“Celebrating success matters, and stating expectations matters even more,” said Reema Siyam, head of the Diversity and Inclusion Division. “We wanted Aramco employees to hear from the company’s top management on their commitment to diversity and inclusion. And the message was clear: Aramco will be a role model for equity, where ability and ambition alone are the measure of success.”
