Saudi Arabia’s new female bosses: Our goal is to keep pace with Vision 2030
The recently appointed women municipality heads of Sharafiya, Dhahban and the women’s municipality branch in Jeddah started their first day of work with inspection tours of districts in their jurisdictions on Tuesday.
They said their focus will be on developing municipal services so as to achieve the goals of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030.
Women’s municipality branch head Maryam Abu Al-Ainain said this is an extension of the work of the general administration for women’s services. It will provide services to businesswomen in Jeddah like issuing commercial licenses, conducting field inspections of women’s commercial facilities.
Supervisory teams monitor the health cards of female workers, who have to wear their uniforms. There are now 5,000 female commercial firms.
Head of Dhahban municipality Shadah Al-Mohanna is thankful for the trust reposed in her.
“We are striving to improve performance and meet the demands of the residents of the area,” said Sharafiya municipality head Hiba Al-Bluwi.
