Injazat Data Systems, a leading provider of IT services in the region, is fully committed to supporting the development of future Emirati leaders as part of their Emiratisation strategy, which is aligned to Abu Dhabi’s 2030 vision. Reaffirming the identification of potential leaders and supporting their professional development as a key component of this strategy, Injazat recently selected 14 female UAE National employees to participate in a Leadership and Management program tailored to their abilities and personality assessments. The group underwent an intensive 6-month leadership program to earn Institute of Leaderships and Management (ILM) Level 3 Qualification in Leadership and Management Skills, certified by ILM, the UK’s largest management body.
ILM provides a comprehensive range of products and services for supporting and developing existing and future leaders and managers. Its ILM Level 3 Qualification in Leadership and Management Skills program covers three mandatory units on Problem-Solving and Decision-Making Techniques, Leadership Styles, and Team Motivation and Development. The Injazat candidates enrolled under the program went through rigorous classroom and work-based development conducted by The Injazat Institute (Ti2), Injazat’s business-oriented career development initiative and a certified ILM training provider. Each unit taken was assessed via a work-based assignment after completing 10 guided learning hours coached and mentored by some of Injazat’s Senior Management team.
“We are extremely proud of our Emirati employees who have once again shown that women can excel in the world of business and in any field they engage in. Their achievement reflects the importance that Injazat places on Emiratization and women’s empowerment in pursuing ICT-enabled growth for the country. We commend the Ti2 team and our partners at ILM for preparing these aspiring women leaders well,” said Ibrahim Lari, CEO, Injazat Data Systems.
With more than 15 per cent of its workforce consisting of UAE Nationals, Injazat is considered a major proponent of Emiratization within local industry. The company has also undertaken various initiatives in cooperation with leading organizations such as Cambridge University and ILM to realize the full potential of its human capital.
