In an effort to support and celebrate the third annual Emirati Women’s day, Etihad Aviation Group (EAG) held a series of events. The theme ‘Women are partners in giving’ was highlighted, in line with the UAE’s 2017 Year of Giving initiative.

As per statistics, women comprise 36% of EAG’s nearly 26,000-strong workforce, working alongside men across the field of engineering, flight deck, and cargo. Emirati women are also well represented in these functions, with several of them sharing their experiences on panel discussions held during the celebrations.

The Etihad Aviation Group employs 2,859 Emiratis – 1,462 women and 1,394 men – in the UAE and globally.
