Qatari women have been receiving plaudits for blazing a trail across different sectors in recent times.

It was the turn of Ooredoo Group’s Chief Human Resources Officer Fatima Sultan Al Kuwari to be recognised for her hard work when she was chosen as the ‘Female Executive of the Year — Business Products – More Than 2,500 Employees’ at the recent International Stevie Awards for Women in Business 2022.

The Stevie Awards, the world’s premier business awards for female entrepreneurs, executives, employees and the organisations they run, recognised Al Kuwari for her positive and sustainable impact at Ooredoo, her effective and inspirational leadership, outstanding achievements and success as a role model to other women in the industry and the Middle East.

Aziz Aluthman Fakhroo, Ooredoo’s Managing Director and Group Chief Executive Officer, said: “We’re proud of Fatima for this well-deserved recognition by such an esteemed international body as the Stevies. Fatima represents an embodiment of our company culture, which places the employee at the heart of our success, with a clear focus on diversity and equal opportunities.

“We’ve witnessed over the years Fatima’s remarkable journey at Ooredoo, where she’s played a key role in shaping the company’s voice in the market, and we wholeheartedly congratulate her on this award,” he added.

A true trailblazer, Fatima’s career highlights include being the first woman in Ooredoo Kuwait’s history to be appointed as a Board member, becoming the first female chairperson at Ooredoo Maldives and heading up the first equal board in terms of gender diversity within Ooredoo Group.

Fatima said: “I’m humbled to receive this award and pay tribute to my country and my company for giving me such an incredible platform with which I’m able to do what I love. I’m inspired by Qatari female leaders and their efforts to shape Qatar as a progressive country, where the role of women is championed in all walks of life.

“Thanks to our wise leadership under HH The Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani and Qatar’s National Vision 2030, Qatari women are today occupying high-level positions across various sectors and industries, supported by a robust system that provides women in the workplace equal opportunities to men,” she said.

“I’m grateful to our forward-thinking Ooredoo leadership, who’ve supported me throughout my career. Although technology can be seen as more of a male-dominated field, I’ve always been encouraged, recognised and rewarded according to my talent alone. As Group Chief Human Resources Officer, I’m dedicated to furthering this legacy and to continuously upgrading our working environment,” said Al Kuwari.
