Established in January 2013, WOMEN ACHIEVE focuses on seven key ideals that companies undertake to guide them towards developing a work environment that is conducive for the professional growth of women. The ideals include encouraging women to grow through training, shadowing, coaching, mentorship and internship programs, to consider female candidates for new opportunities and support ‘rising stars' into leadership positions. WOMEN ACHIEVE also encourages the induction of women to serve on boards of different organizations and promotes the importance of fair remuneration for female employees.
Participation in WOMEN ACHIEVE is open to entities of all sizes. Companies that are interested can elect to become signatories by contacting AmCham Abu Dhabi. WOMEN ACHIEVE signatories receive a certificate of acknowledgement from AmCham Abu Dhabi and are eligible to use the WOMEN ACHIEVE seal on their communication collateral.
