DANAT Signs UN Women’s Empowerment Principles

by Madaline Dunn

The Bahrain Institute for Pearls and Gemstones (DANAT) has announced that it has officially become a signatory of the UN Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs). 

The seven WEPs principles advocate for:

  • High-level corporate leadership on gender equality,
  • Fair treatment of all employees without discrimination, 
  • Enhancement of employee health, well-being, and safety, 
  • Provision of education and training for career advancement, 
  • Responsible project and supply chain development, 
  • Community engagement and advocacy, and 
  • Robust measurement and reporting.

Commenting on the announcement of the Institute joining the UN Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs), Noora Jamsheer, CEO of DANAT Institute, said: “Becoming a signatory of WEPS was a natural step for DANAT. The principles align with our long-standing values thanks to Bahrain’s steadfast commitment to women empowerment through initiatives led by the Supreme Council for Women.”

The CEO of DANAT highlighted the Institute’s assurance of equitable salary and equal opportunities for learning, development, and leadership roles.

Women constitute a majority of the total workforce and hold a “significant percentage” of leadership positions, the Institute said.
