First Diversity & Inclusion Forum at Nesma
Oct 2019

Nesma Holding hosted its first Diversity & Inclusion Forum under the theme, “Diversity is a fact, inclusion is an act." Embracing the positive social changes brought forward by the Kingdom's Vision 2030, this forum replaced the Nesma Women's Forums, which took place every year starting in 2012.

Speaking to an audience of men and women at Nesma Training Center in Jeddah and Nesma Village in Dammam, Noura Al Turki, Vice President, Nesma Holding announced a new vision for diversity and inclusion at Nesma. She said, "When we launched the Nesma Women's Forum, it was a message to our female employees that they are valued and appreciated. Given the social environment of the time, hosting a separate event for women was the way to include them. Today, the landscape has changed. We have jumped in just 7 years from having 281 women in the Nesma Group to 1,200 women who are integrated across departments and companies. Our value of diversity has not changed, but how we manifest this diversity through inclusion must keep up with changing times."

At the event, participants discussed the concept of diversity and highlighted that diversity includes nationality, gender, age, personal experience, physical abilities, and other factors that make the workforce unique.

Moderated by Nesma Holding’s Corporate Communications Executive Manager, Rana Zumai, panel discussions took place where speakers shared how companies can prosper from inclusion, how to support empowerment of minorities, and the fact that diverse businesses are stronger, more competitive, and more successful.
