Muscat: Mobile phone operator Ooredoo celebrated the graduation of 130 female public sector employees from the Springboard programme, in collaboration with the British Council.

The ceremony was attended by Ahmed bin Abdullah Al Shouhi, Minister of Regional Municipalities and Water Resources, members of the Ooredoo Management team and dignitaries from the Ministry of the Civil Service.

Participants were honoured as Wave 5 of the programme came to a conclusion, raising the total number of graduates to 553 since 2016.

Developed by women for women of all ages and backgrounds, the programme continues to translate an MoU signed between Ooredoo, the Ministry of Civil Service and the British Council, to drive female empowerment into action.

During the intensive course, women from multiple government agencies and ministries across Oman received essential skills training and applied them to an exciting project development course.

To date, Springboard has been introduced to over 175,000 women in over 22 countries, empowering them harness their talents and live healthier, happier and more productive lives.
