Dubai Airports launches dedicated platform to empower, inspire & connect women in aviation

Dubai Airports is launching the new Dubai Airports Women’s Network (DAWN), a dedicated platform to empower, inspire, and connect women in aviation.

The platform will also maximize personal and professional development opportunities for Dubai Airports’ female professionals.

Focused around three key pillars – ‘Connect’, ‘Grow’, ‘Thrive’ – the DAWN platform will provide a range of networking and knowledge sharing opportunities while contributing to Dubai Airports’ ability to maintain a happy, healthy and balanced work environment for all employees. The network also advances Dubai Airports’ corporate commitment of furthering more inclusive workplace practices, while improving employee engagement and wellbeing in line with the UAE’s National Strategy.

Paul Griffiths, CEO of Dubai Airports, said: “Our people are our most important asset and the continued growth and success of our female workforce is essential to the continued success of all aspects of our operations. The DAWN platform is a long-term initiative to help ensure Dubai Airports continues to build on its commitment to provide an inclusive, supportive environment where all female professionals are encouraged and empowered to realize their maximum ambitions and potential.”

“We also hope the DAWN network will help inspire young female professionals across Dubai and the UAE to explore the amazing opportunities the aviation community provides,” he added.
