Endangered species find new home in Saudi Arabia’s ancient city of Hegra

Mon, 2021-03-08 04:46 JEDDAH: Three endangered species have been given a new home in their original habitat, the ancient city of Hegra in AlUla. The release of 25 Rhim gazelle, 10 Nubian ibex and eight Arabian oryx into the wild was a result of cooperation between the Royal Commission for AlUla (RCU) and the National Center for Wildlife, a government agency tasked with the protection and conservation of wildlife in the Kingdom. The animals will find their new home at the UNESCO World Heritage Site, with their release marking the third wave of species reintroduced to the wild as part of an initiative that was announced on the UN’s World Wildlife Day. The initiative was launched in 2019 in the presence of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, in conjunction with the RCU’s vision for AlUla, to conserve the county’s natural heritage while engaging local communities. Culture Minister and RCU governor Prince Badr bin Farhan Al-Saud said: “This initiative is a continuation of the RCU’s commitment to the protection and conservation of AlUla’s precious wildlife and natural habitats. This wildlife release has a unique setting against the magnificent backdrop of Hegra, a UNESCO-inscribed site and a staple of AlUla’s tourism offering. The site has been carefully prepared to host these species with an integrated protection and monitoring program, and we’re delighted with the first release of animals, which visitors will be able to see when they visit Hegra.” He added that the RCU was continuously working to restore habitats and reintroduce wildlife to help conserve and enhance AlUla’s natural environment, and to ensure its nature was as “spectacular” as its heritage landscape. “Last year we announced the Sharaan Nature Reserve, a 1,500-square kilometer area to protect and conserve the region’s most diverse wildlife habitats. And now, with the Hegra wildlife release, we continue our journey of restoration in AlUla.” This project is part of a wider vision to sustainably develop AlUla, guided by the RCU’s Strategic Principles, as a global destination for cultural and natural heritage. Part of this long-term vision is to prepare for the possible future reintroduction of the Arabian leopard and other native wildlife species.   Saudi Arabia's heritage treasures The five historic sites inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List tell a story of universal importance Enter keywords */ Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: HegraAlUla Saudi Arabia implements strict rules to protect wildlifeSaudi wildlife center to issue falcon passports online

Raheeq Al-Harbi: A female IT pioneer in Saudi healthcare

Mon, 2021-03-08 08:52 RIYADH: Raheeq Al-Harbi received nearly perfect grades in her secondary school exams. In Saudi Arabia, that usually means a career in medicine.  Today, however, her career journey, spanning almost a decade in the digital healthcare industry, is a booming success, and did not involve going to medical school. Although excited at the prospect of a medical career in her early years, Al-Harbi was dissuaded from becoming a doctor by her family.  “They feared the long nightshifts at the hospital and essentially giving up my life,” she said. “So I thought OK, I’ll follow my older sister’s lead and pursue software engineering instead.” Indeed, Al-Harbi went on to earn a BA in information technology (IT) from King Saud University (KSU) in Riyadh. She fell in love with analytics and software engineering the day she attended her first lecture.    New beginnings After graduation, Al-Harbi worked briefly at a local bank, providing IT treasury back-office support.  “I worked in the treasury department, which was a core section of the bank. While it was a very challenging experience, I was still able to prove myself,” she said.  “But I could tell that working in finance — 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in a cubicle, with only the computer to keep me company — wasn’t for me. Yes I love software engineering, but I also love to interact with real people, solving problems together. Most importantly, I wanted to utilize my skills to improve the quality of life of those in need.” So Al-Harbi decided to bring her IT expertise to the healthcare arena and joined King Fahad Medical City (KFMC), one of the largest medical and research centers in Saudi Arabia. “I remember the first day after I got the job, I thought yes, this is me, I belong here,” she said. Ironically, her family’s concerns about her spending all her time at a hospital did come true. “I practically lived there, from morning to late at night. At one point, I even slept in the ER because I was working on an important project setting up the ER system,” she said.  “Despite all the sleepless nights, however, I was happy and passionate about working together with my team on something tangible. You could see the impact of our work on the people — the patients whom we served. It was really satisfying.” Over the next few years, Al-Harbi won a number of awards, including the Saudi Healthcare Innovation Award at KFMC for designing patient pathways to reduce crowding in different departments.  That year, not only was she the youngest person to be considered for such an award, but she was also the only woman to receive one. At that point, she was faced with another dilemma as her work had earned her a scholarship to pursue a master’s degree in the US.  She enjoyed her job so much she did not want to leave it behind, so as an efficient multitasker, she continued working while studying part-time, earning her MBA from Prince Sultan University.    ‘Wings to fly’ Shortly after getting her MBA, she was approached by GE Healthcare and “jumped” at the opportunity. “It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. GE has given me the wings to fly, so to speak,” she said. “I’m grateful for the opportunities that GE has provided for both my professional and personal growth — from project management to presales, from purely analytical roles all the way to the commercial world.” Today, Al-Harbi is a senior solution architect with GE Digital, responsible for the business aspects of customer solutions.  This means she is well-versed in understanding customers’ needs and pain points, and is well-equipped to design solutions that deliver optimal business results. “What I love about my work is that I’m constantly on the lookout for new ideas finding solutions to problems. Each project is like a jigsaw puzzle that needs to be solved,” she said. “This is the beauty of our work — no two days are ever the same. We strive to be innovative and challenge the status quo in every situation, and every customer has their own set of challenges and opportunities.” While at GE Digital, she has supported the Saudi Health Ministry’s major electronic medical records digital transformation project, as well as its highly regarded Mawid patient appointments app. Notably, she created a patient journey blueprint for ministry hospitals called the “Golden Package.”  This initiative has been implemented in ministry hospitals across the Kingdom, and is considered the standard that needs to be followed.    Perks and challenges Al-Harbi has attended many international conferences throughout her career, and has actively participated in a number of panel discussions, including the 2018 Top CEO Arab Women Forum on empowering women entrepreneurs in the Middle East.  She spoke about the key role women’s empowerment plays in advancing businesses and the customer experience, as well as women’s careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, and beyond.  Looking back at her career so far, the most important piece of advice Al-Harbi has for young Saudi women is: “Invest in yourself — it’s the best return on investment you’ll ever get.” She also puts great weight on being authentic and true to oneself. “Be real. Present yourself as you really are,” she said. “With social media platforms nowadays and everything being remote and virtual, we sometimes crave authenticity and care.”  That even extends to one’s job title. “What does it really mean?” she asked. “Find a vision you truly believe in, and contribute your skills and gifts to help advance that vision.”  Lastly, “don’t take no for an answer,” she said. “Go above and beyond the call of duty, and give 110 percent.” Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: international women's day 2021Saudi ArabiaGE Healthcare Vision 2030 puts Saudi women in the driver’s seatSaudi women’s sport grows by leaps and bounds

Saudi women’s sport grows by leaps and bounds

Mon, 2021-03-08 01:53 DUBAI: With every passing week, more and more Saudi women are taking major strides across sporting arenas in the Kingdom. Their progress, slow at first, has become a deluge. It was only in 2017 that women were allowed inside stadiums to watch football. But November of last year saw the launch of the 24-team Women’s Football League, which was won by Challenge Riyadh. The first Saudi female referee, Sham Al-Ghamdi, is rising through the ranks. There are Saudi fencers and show jumpers stepping up to compete at levels previously reserved only for men. Boxing is starting to attract Saudi women into the ring. In motorsports there are the likes of rally driver Dania Akeel pushing boundaries. And only last week, during the Formula E season opener at Diriyah, the first Saudi motorsports woman driver, Reema Juffali, announced that she had signed for Douglas Motorsport in the BRDC British F3 Championship. These are not cosmetic, or isolated, changes, but ones opening doors for the next generation of Saudi female athletes. It is encouraging, as we celebrate International Women’s Day, that genuine progress is being made at grass-roots level upward, and will only increase in the coming weeks, months and years. Just as important is what is taking place at the highest levels of sporting institutions in Saudi Arabia. Female representation at sporting federations and inside boardrooms has blossomed in line with Vision 2030, slowly banishing outdated notions of women’s place in sports. “Any change will face some resistance, whether it’s women participating in sports or others,” Saudi Sports Minister Prince Abdul Aziz Turki Al-Faisal said in a recent interview with Arab News. “Our programs today with the Ministry of Sports are all about diversity and inclusion and we had to make sure that everyone is involved in all of our programs. To shed light about certain things and how this has evolved toward positive things, in 2015 we had zero national female teams. Today, we have 23 national teams that are participating in the name of the country.” “We had 32 federations in 2017, today we have 64 federations; 38 of them have female board members that represent female sports within these federations,” he said. “There’s a lot of changes that have happened within the ecosystem of sports.” The minister drew attention to the period of time that has seen these changes and said that this had to go hand-in-hand with societal and cultural awakening. HIGHLIGHTS • It was only in 2017 that women were allowed inside stadiums to watch football. • November of last year saw the launch of the 24-team Women’s Football League, which was won by Challenge Riyadh. • The first Saudi female referee, Sham Al-Ghamdi, is rising through the ranks. “These things were unheard of in the past and now they are happening and they are finding support from the players and their families,” Prince Abdul Aziz said. “Things are changing, and things are changing to the positive, and we have to make sure that they change in the right way with the right momentum to make sure that we put the right steps in and for it to be sustainable for the future. We don’t want to do one thing today and regret doing it in the next two or three years.” To avoid such potential missteps, measures have been taken to ensure the right female representation has been put in place across the Kingdom in recent years. One of the most prominent has been the appointment of Shaima Saleh Al-Husseini as the managing director of the Saudi Sports for All Federation (SFA) in March 2019. The work that she oversaw in 2020 has proved monumental. During the lockdowns of 2020, as the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic spread throughout the world, the SFA played a major part in maintaining physical and mental well-being among the homebound Saudi population. The digital national health and wellness campaign, Baytak Nadeek (Your Home, Your Gym) saw 3.8 million Saudis join in a matter of weeks, while other initiatives such as the Women’s Fitness Festival attracted thousands of participants through social media channels. The latter was staged as part of the SFA’s focus on increasing health and wellness across all segments of Saudi society through education, events, activations and public awareness campaigns. Crowning a challenging year was the launch of the Women’s Football League (WFL) across Riyadh, Jeddah and Dammam. “Empowering women comes through positive and proactive programs like the WFL that have been conceptualized to continue to have a lasting impact on health, fitness and wellbeing,” Al-Husseini said. “The SFA, committed to putting women at the forefront of our mission to grow Saudi Arabia’s healthy and active community, continues to engage public and private-sector stakeholders to realize this aim together.” Such tangible achievements in the field of women’s empowerment stand in stark contrast to some of the scandals taking place elsewhere. Recent weeks have seen calls for the resignation of Yoshiro Mori, the head of the Tokyo Olympics organizing committee, after he made derogatory remarks about women, saying that they talked too much and that meetings with female board directors would “take a lot of time.” Such words would be unacceptable in Saudi Arabia today. Acclaim for the fundamental work being undertaken to include women in sports from grass roots level to boardroom level may have been slow in coming from abroad. Inside Saudi Arabia, however, the role women are playing is there for all to see and appreciate.   Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: saudi sports womenInternational Women’s Day 2021International Women's Day Meet the Iraqi para-athlete inspiring confidence in women everywhereCommunities, networks key to Saudi women’s progress, experts say

Vision 2030 puts Saudi women in the driver’s seat

Mon, 2021-03-08 02:19 RIYADH: As we mark Women’s International Day, we see the new highs Saudi women have soared to since the launch of Vision 2030 in the Kingdom. Reforms have changed the narrative surrounding women’s empowerment from inclusivity and equality to notability and distinction. Women’s accomplishments as part of Vision 2030 have set the stage for the further success and achievement of young female leaders in the Kingdom. The goals of Saudi women are no longer equality or equal opportunity, but rather surpassing their counterparts in ideology, accomplishments and innovation across all sectors. In doing so, they have paved the way for a young and determined generation of future female leaders. These innovative accomplishments are all due to the stepping stones laid out by Vision 2030’s extensive social reforms for women. Now, Saudi women are ambassadors, general managers, directors of private entities, government spokespersons and more. Their voices are now heard wide and clear across the world. As of February 2021, women are earning ranks in the Kingdom’s armed forces and holding positions of leadership, including as sergeants commanding teams of soldiers in the Saudi Arabian Army, Royal Saudi Air Defense, Royal Saudi Navy, Royal Saudi Strategic Missile Force and Armed Forces Medical Services. It is simply no longer the aim of Saudi women to hope for inclusivity in society and the workplace. The new goals set on the horizon are leadership, direction and making an impact on the future of the Kingdom, whether through financial growth, social reform, or paving the way for new generations of women to succeed. Vision 2030’s initiatives and reforms have not only affected the careers of women, but also their social lives — amplifying voices that were not always able to be heard. Legal reforms have been amended by Vision 2030 to ensure the rights of divorced women. An alimony fund was created to support women and their children during court proceedings, and women are now able to enter judicial departments independently without the past restriction of having a guardian present. In the past, judgments meant women had to return back to their homes without any objections, but since Vision 2030, these regulations are a literal thing of the past — a historic blimp in the bright future ahead. It is no exaggeration to say that when Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was appointed in his position in 2017, promises were made and delivered. Women are involved in the workforce, driving on the roads and are more independent, particularly with the relaxing of the guardianship law last year. Tools such as the sexual harassment law were put in place to ensure their safety, and they found complete support from the government in facilitating their ambitions, including being appointed to high positions. In July 2020, under a royal decree by King Salman, 13 women were appointed to serve on the Saudi Human Rights Commission, making half of the commission female. This decision gave women a louder voice and a foundation through which to make an impact in the Kingdom. Women are now a driving force in growing the Kingdom’s alternative economic resources, and over the past decade there has been a surge in the number of female entrepreneurs, business owners and CEOs. HIGHLIGHTS • Saudi women are now ambassadors, general managers, directors of private entities, government spokespersons and more. • As of February 2021, women are earning ranks in the Kingdom’s armed forces and holding positions of leadership. • An alimony fund was created to support women and their children during court proceedings. • Women are now able to enter judicial departments independently without the past restriction of having a guardian present. • In July 2020, under a royal decree by King Salman, 13 women were appointed to serve on the Saudi Human Rights Commission. Dr. Maliha Hashmi, executive director for the health and wellbeing sector of the NEOM megacity project, is a young female health leader in the region. She said that Vision 2030 has created the opportunity for women to build new roles and transform older expectations in a positive way. “Through Vision 2030, social acceptance, and most of all, the continuous support of the government, we’ll see a balanced leadership, in both the private and public sectors, represented by both men and women. Plus, I’m very optimistic that we’ll witness in the near future more women in ministerial and international representation,” she said. “Under the visionary leadership of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Saudi Arabia has taken a giant step forward in empowering its women. While the world knows and talks about women drivers on Saudi roads, there’s more to this socio-economic and cultural change than meets the eye,” Hashmi, a Harvard doctorate degree holder, told Arab News. “More high-tech startups can now be owned by women. There are now female diplomats in the GCC. I am super excited that this started in Saudi Arabia with Princess Reema bint Bandar as the first Saudi female ambassador. I am also honored to represent NEOM as one of its leading female executives. I hope this passion within me for this amazing project is contagious and is an encouragement for other young women to join, and that I can serve as a great role model for them.” Vision 2030 has changed the dynamic of the Kingdom and not only opened it to the world, but also to many Saudis. Women from the Kingdom are now seen traveling around the world and exploring new cultures without the obligatory presence of a male guardian, due to a decree allowing women to obtain their own passports and travel over the age of 21 without a male guardian. Vision 2030 gave women the right to drive, planting the seeds that led to the emergence of the first professional female racing driver, Reema Al-Juffali. The reforms also created equal opportunity in science, and pushed women scientists into the limelight, such as Nouf Al-Numair, a “DNA decoder” who researches the early detection of emerging diseases through gene mutation. This is only a glimpse into the world of achievements female leaders in Saudi Arabia have created as a result of empowerment in the Kingdom. It is evident that the fast changes led by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman have also had a global impact. For the second year in a row, the “Women, Business and the Law 2021” report by the World Bank Group listed Saudi Arabia as one of the top countries for economic inclusion and women’s reform. One woman who has benefited from the changes is Noura Al-Dossary. Orphaned at a young age and divorced with one daughter, Al-Dossary was in a predicament. Her sister and her brother-in-law helped her, but she soon realized she had to support both herself and her daughter financially. “Vision 2030 opened doors for me that I thought were bolted shut,” she told Arab News. Coming from a conservative background, and with limited education, she ventured into various workplaces, and soon found work at a small college. However, she was unsatisfied with the pay, the work atmosphere and the lack of insurance and benefits. But an opportunity soon presented itself in a laundry department at a five-star hotel. She was attentive to detail, eager to learn and grateful for the opportunity. “I was exposed to a different world. I met people from diverse nationalities, mixed with the opposite gender and quickly learned English on the job — something I never dreamed of.” Al-Dossary’s workplace enrolled her in courses to not only further her career, but also her character. “I felt invested in it,” she said, a sentiment that many Saudi women share. “People tell me: ‘Oh, but you work in laundry.’ But let me tell you something: I’m proud of myself.” There are many women like Al-Dossary who have succeeded in their own right. They may not appear in the headlines, but they are a vital part of Saudi society. “I’m able to financially support my family, have insurance and benefits, and I bought a home,” said Al-Dossary. “None of this would have been possible without Vision 2030. I am independent and I finally found the support I needed to realize my dreams.” Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: international women's day 2021International Women’s Day 2021Vision2030Vision 2030 Saudi women’s sport grows by leaps and boundsSaudi Culture Ministry achieves gender balance with women in key roles

Endangered species find new home in KSA’s Hegra

Mon, 2021-03-08 04:46 JEDDAH: Three endangered species have been given a new home in their original habitat, the ancient city of Hegra in AlUla. The release of 25 Rhim gazelle, 10 Nubian ibex and eight Arabian oryx into the wild was a result of cooperation between the Royal Commission for AlUla (RCU) and the National Center for Wildlife, a government agency tasked with the protection and conservation of wildlife in the Kingdom. The animals will find their new home at the UNESCO World Heritage Site, with their release marking the third wave of species reintroduced to the wild as part of an initiative that was announced on the UN’s World Wildlife Day. The initiative was launched in 2019 in the presence of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, in conjunction with the RCU’s vision for AlUla, to conserve the county’s natural heritage while engaging local communities. Culture Minister and RCU governor Prince Badr bin Farhan Al-Saud said: “This initiative is a continuation of the RCU’s commitment to the protection and conservation of AlUla’s precious wildlife and natural habitats. This wildlife release has a unique setting against the magnificent backdrop of Hegra, a UNESCO-inscribed site and a staple of AlUla’s tourism offering. The site has been carefully prepared to host these species with an integrated protection and monitoring program, and we’re delighted with the first release of animals, which visitors will be able to see when they visit Hegra.” He added that the RCU was continuously working to restore habitats and reintroduce wildlife to help conserve and enhance AlUla’s natural environment, and to ensure its nature was as “spectacular” as its heritage landscape. “Last year we announced the Sharaan Nature Reserve, a 1,500-square kilometer area to protect and conserve the region’s most diverse wildlife habitats. And now, with the Hegra wildlife release, we continue our journey of restoration in AlUla.” This project is part of a wider vision to sustainably develop AlUla, guided by the RCU’s Strategic Principles, as a global destination for cultural and natural heritage. Part of this long-term vision is to prepare for the possible future reintroduction of the Arabian leopard and other native wildlife species.   Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: HegraAlUla Saudi Arabia implements strict rules to protect wildlifeSaudi wildlife center to issue falcon passports online

Author: Sun, 2021-03-07 22:54 RIYADH: Inspection and control teams at the General Civil Aviation Authority (GACA) on Sunday began carrying out supervisory rounds to ensure the implementation of preventive measures to combat the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). The teams will monitor national air carriers and airport workers to ensure adherence to the measures. GACA will also continue with its plan to follow up on airports to guarantee the implementation of the precautionary measures outlined in the aviation operating manual. The authority aims to enhance workers’ abilities to detect and handle suspected cases of the virus. The inspections come in conjunction with the instructions of GACA President Abdul Hadi bin Ahmed Al-Mansoori, who stated that all civil aviation employees and airport workers must adhere to the Tawakkalna application and follow the measures established by the authorities to prevent the spread of the virus. GACA is keen to develop and improve the aviation industry and provide the best services to beneficiaries of the Kingdom’s airports in accordance with the highest international standards. It aims to improve services and facilitate travel procedures while also ensuring that all safety precautions are taken to protect public health in light of the pandemic.   Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: General Authority for Civil Aviation (GACA) Entertainment activities resume in Saudi Arabia with strict COVID-19 measuresArab coalition intercepts 2 ballistic missiles launched by Yemen's Houthis towards Saudi Arabia

Saudi aid agency continues relief projects in Yemen

Sun, 2021-03-07 23:01 MARIB: The International Organization for Migration (IOM), supported by the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief), has continued to improve the electricity grid in the Jufaina camp of Yemen’s Marib governorate. IOM and KSrelief aim to provide various humanitarian aid to the displaced families and alleviate the current humanitarian crisis. In September, KSrelief signed a $15-million joint agreement with IOM to carry out several projects that would benefit the Yemeni people, ensure their access to shelter and educational services and coordinate camps in Marib, Lahj and Hadramout, as part of the Yemen Humanitarian Response Plan. KSrelief also launched a project to distribute medical equipment and supplies to four hospitals in the Marib governorate, in cooperation with the World Health Organization. Backed by KSrelief, the Dialysis Center in Yemen’s Al-Mahrah governorate has continued to provide medical services to beneficiaries. During the period from Feb. 20 to Feb. 25, the center received 35 patients who received 82 dialysis sessions. KSrelief has implemented 575 projects in Yemen at a total cost of nearly $3.5 billion. The initiatives have been carried out in cooperation with 80 local, regional and international partners. Since its inception in 2015, KSrelief has implemented 1,536 projects in 59 countries at a total cost of nearly $5 billion.   Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) Saudi aid agency, UNICEF discuss joint projects in YemenSaudi aid agency delivers aid in Sudan, Yemen

Sun, 2021-03-07 23:09 RIYADH: The Saudi Project for Landmine Clearance (Masam) dismantled 1,846 mines in Yemen during the first week of March. They comprised 19 anti-personnel mines, 954 anti-tank mines, 868 unexploded ordnances and five explosive devices. Masam is one of several initiatives undertaken by Saudi Arabia on the directive of King Salman to help ease the suffering of the Yemeni people. It is implemented by Saudi cadres and international experts to remove mines planted by Iran-backed Houthi militias in various Yemeni regions, especially Marib, Aden, Sanaa, Al-Jawf, Al-Dhale, Hodeidah, Shabwa and Taiz. A total of 222,198 mines have been extracted since the start of the project. More than 1.1 million mines have been planted by the Houthis, claiming hundreds of civilian lives. Masam has 32 demining teams, and aims to dismantle mines in Yemen to protect civilians and ensure that urgent humanitarian supplies are delivered safely. It trains local demining engineers, gives them modern equipment and helps mine victims. In 2020, Masam’s contract was extended for one year at a cost of $30 million.   Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) KSRelief New York exhibit showcases Saudi projectsSaudi projects put Kingdom on international tourist map

Saudi oil port and Aramco residential area targeted by drone, missile

Sun, 2021-03-07 23:17 RIYADH: A major oil port and Aramco residential area were attacked with a drone and ballistic missile in eastern Saudi Arabia on Sunday. A «petroleum tank farm» at Ras Tanura Port, one of the largest oil shipping ports in the world, was attacked with a drone in the morning, the energy ministry said. The drone was coming from the direction of the sea. In the evening, shrapnel from a ballistic missile fell near Saudi Aramco’s residential area in Dhahran where thousands of the company’s local and international employees and their families live. No one was injured and no property damaged in either attack. “The Kingdom condemns and criminalizes such repeated acts of sabotage and hostility,” a ministry spokesman said. “The Kingdom calls on nations and organizations of the world to stand together against these attacks, which are aimed at civilian objects and vital installations. “Such acts of sabotage do not only target the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, but also the security and stability of energy supplies to the world, and therefore, the global economy. They affect the security of petroleum exports, freedom of world trade, and maritime traffic.” The attacks come after the Arab coalition said it had launched airstrikes on Houthi targets in Yemen after a wave of drone attacks. The Iran-backed militia had fired 12 explosives laden drones and two missiles. The missiles targeted in south-west Saudi Arabia, about 50 kilometers from the Yemen border.

Communities, networks key to Saudi women’s progress, experts say

Sun, 2021-03-07 23:24 JEDDAH: A determination to strengthen the contribution of Saudi women to society and the economy is one of many bold ambitions outlined in the Kingdom’s Vision 2030. Women’s economic empowerment is critical to achieving gender equality and strengthening sustainable development cooperation. It includes women’s ability to participate equally in existing markets, having a louder voice and more agency, and their meaningful involvement in economic decision-making at all levels. This can be achieved by ensuring women’s financial inclusion, technical inclusion, entrepreneurship empowerment and participation in decision-making. For the second year in a row, Saudi Arabia has made notable progress in advancing women’s economic opportunities, according to the World Bank Group’s latest report. The Women, Business, and the Law 2021 report placed Saudi Arabia among the leading countries in the Middle East and North African region — scoring 80 points out of 100, up from the 70.6 achieved in 2020. According to the report, Saudi Arabia has progressed in reducing wage inequality, eliminated restrictions on female employment in jobs previously deemed too dangerous, and lifted bans on women working night shifts. As science progresses at a rapid pace, access to new technology and the ability to create and shape technological change is increasingly becoming a fundamental tool to support women’s empowerment and improve their lives, especially in a post-pandemic world. During a roundtable discussion in July last year spawned by Women20 (W20), an official engagement group of the G20, speakers noted that only 48 percent of women are accustomed to the latest technology, while 60 percent of Saudi women use social media platforms without producing any digital content. This confirms that women are users of technology, not producers, they said. “Improving digital and cybersecurity literacy among women contributes to their economic empowerment, since they will be needed in all sectors locally, regionally and internationally,” Dalal Al-Harthi, a cybersecurity expert, told Arab News. Al-Harthi is a faculty member at Shaqra University and resident engineer at the US-based cybersecurity company Palo Alto Networks. Throughout the last three years, she has worked in three positions across different institutions in the US as the only female engineer in her teams. However, she considered those situations as motivation to prove herself, as opposed to a challenge. “Males historically and currently dominate the cybersecurity field. A recent report by Cybersecurity Ventures states that women make up 20 percent of the cybersecurity workforce. Because of this massive shortage of women among cybersecurity professionals today, I became deeply passionate about raising this percentage to 50 percent,” Al-Harthi said. “The cybersecurity field is the hottest cake in the market, and in high demand around the world,” she added. Therefore, the digital empowerment of women and girls by upgrading their knowledge and skills allows them to seize the opportunities provided by evolving global markets. Moreover, attracting more women to the tech sector is essential to unlocking the potential of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and ensuring technology is developed from a balanced perspective. Al-Harthi advises women who want to venture into cybersecurity to improve their technical skills, obtain professional certificates, look into cybersecurity job descriptions to grasp the bigger picture, and work on their communication, research and writing skills. According to the undersecretary for women’s empowerment at the Saudi Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development, Hind Al-Zahid, having women in prominent leadership positions will result in greater numbers of women in senior roles in the labor market. Saudi Arabia has increasingly encouraged women’s leadership in recent years. The most notable event came earlier this year, which saw the appointment of Iman Al-Mutairi as executive director for destination branding at the Soudah Development Co., a new brand fully owned by Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund, the Public Investment Fund. Several initiatives have also been launched to prepare women for leading positions in the public sector, such as the QIYADYAT platform and the leadership academy at the Public Administration Institute. As it stands, 2.5 percent of leading positions in the Kingdom’s public sector are occupied by women, but in the private sector, the figure rises to 25 percent. In a recent interview with Al-Arabiya TV, Al-Zahid said that the gap between the public and private sectors is due to the lack of a talent pool that helps include more women in the public sector, as many women work in the education and health industries. On the bright side, the latest numbers show that women’s participation in the labor market has increased to 31 percent, exceeding the government’s goal of 25 percent by 2025. Dr. Albandari Al-Rabiah, director of the Studies and Information Department at the Public Administration Institute, said that studies have shown that a balanced representation of women leaders across different levels of an organization leads to a higher level of performance and innovation, and therefore increased revenues and a distinct competitive advantage. Dr. Al-Rabiah also conducted a field study to evaluate the experience of women leaders in the Kingdom’s public sector. “The results of the study demonstrated the high sense of commitment among Saudi women toward their responsibilities and role in society, as well as their relentless pursuit to prove themselves, in addition to a number of challenges that face women on the ascending ladder to leadership positions,” she said. Two years after the study was published, Al-Rabiah insists that the Kingdom is witnessing a decisive turning point for women and their journey towards leadership positions. The unemployment rate among women in Saudi Arabia is 31 percent, while among men, it stands at 9 percent. Therefore, women have been encouraged to get involved in entrepreneurship to expand their participation in the labor market, fuel economic growth and create more jobs for their female peers. Vision 2030 aims to increase the contribution of SMEs to Saudi gross domestic product from 20 to 35 percent. Emon Shakoor, an ex-neuroscience researcher and now technology entrepreneur who started her journey in her early 20s, launched Saudi Arabia’s first tech-inclusion and female-focused accelerator to help more women venture into the field. “Today in Saudi, according to Ministry of Education numbers, more women are graduating from tech-related majors than men, however after graduation they do not continue working in the industry,” said Shakoor, CEO and founder of Blossom Accelerator. She said that the way to solve this problem is for women to have more allies, mentors, and networks, because that is the only way that women graduating from the field can stay and strive in the industry. Shakoor added that entrepreneurship is a male-dominated sector, and that although female entrepreneurs have become more and more noticeable, the most successful and biggest companies in the Kingdom were founded by men. That is the case not because men are better than women, but because men have their well-established communities, she said. In her own life, Shakoor said that she did not always receive enough social trust and respect as an ambitious and successful entrepreneur. “I overcame the situation by continuing to work and focusing on my customers, who are other women founders,” she said. “People underestimate you at the beginning, but focus on the customer, and you’ll eventually succeed.”   Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: International Women's DayInternational Women’s Day 2021Vision2030Vision 2030 Jordanian women have come a long way, but much work remains to be doneSaudi women welcome World Bank recognition of advances in empowerment

Arab coalition destroys 10 Houthi drones targeting civilians

Sun, 2021-03-07 07:47 RIYADH: The Arab-led coalition fighting in Yemen has intercepted a total of 10 explosive-laden drones targeting civilians on Sunday, according to Al Arabiya TV. The bloc said earlier that it has destroyed five armed drones and that it was closely following a number of other drones, the television channel reported. It then said it has intercepted five more drones that were fired towards Saudi Arabia.  The coalition reaffirmed that it continues to work to protect civilians in accordance with international law.  “We take operational measures to protect civilians and civilian objects in accordance with international humanitarian law,” the statement said.  The Arab coalition early Saturday said that it intercepted seven Houthi drones launched towards southwest Saudi Arabia towards Khamis Mushait and one fired towards Jazan, in the past 24 hours. The attacks sparked calls for action against the Iran-backed militias.  The United States and the United Nations have stepped up diplomatic efforts to end the conflict, which is largely seen in the region as a proxy war between Saudi Arabia and Iran.
