SIDRA Medical and Research Center (Sidra) acknowledged International Women's Day 2017 with a ground breaking event featuring a series of inspiring talks, international speakers and a networking lunch hosted in honour of the women working at Sidra.
Sidra's Chief Learning Officer Dr Kholode al Obaidli who opened the event said:"We are proud to celebrate all the remarkable women of Sidra on this International Women's Day and wanted to thank them for their dedication, skills, hard work, grace and commitment in helping to build and expand our organisation. Through the agenda of inspirational talks and panel sessions, we wanted to inspire them to reach even greater heights of professional development and fulfilment."
The half day event, held at the Qatar National Convention Center included talk about the gender paradox and why women in the GCC are losing out in the workplace despite making significant gains in education. This was presented by Radhika Punshi, the Managing Director and David Jones, the CEO of Talent Enterprise.
There was a presentation by Greg Young, CEO of LeaderShape Global, acknowledging the shifting requirements of successful leaders and how women are naturally equipped to lead 21st century organisations. Greg also shared practical input on how organisations can help support the development of leadership skills in women.
A panel discussion was held on nursing and its future including challenges and perceptions about the profession in Qatar. The panel was moderated by Sidra's Chief Nursing Officer Prof Mary Boyd and included Dr Badriya al Lenjawi, Assistant Executive Director of Nursing for Professional Development and Qatarisation at HMC; Dr Deborah White, Dean of Calgary University in Qatar; and Morag Gates, the Chief Operating Officer of Sidra, who was formerly trained as a registered nurse.
Inspirational talks from Noof al Kuwari, Clinical Nurse from Sidra's Pediatric Surgery Clinic; and Amal al Farsi, a healthcare promoter; was also part of the event schedule.
"Sidra takes great pride in the high quality talent we have in our organisation both women and men and we are committed to ensuring our staff feel acknowledged, appreciated and valued, and have opportunities to develop professionally and excel even further in their chosen fields. It is inspiring to work for an organisation like Sidra whose leadership is fully supportive of our efforts to grow our knowledge, recognise our talent and nurture our development. It's through this commitment that Sidra is quickly becoming the employer of choice for exceptional talent within the local Qatari and expatriate community in Qatar as well as internationally," Dr Obaidli concluded.
