Mr. Hassan Jarrar, Chief Executive Officer of Bahrain Islamic Bank (BisB), recently received the Bahraini Female Winners of C5’s First Nebula Essay Competition at the Bank’s Diplomatic Area Headquarters. The competition was launched by C5 with the support of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and invited Bahraini female students and professionals to explore technology’s potential for greater gender equality and women’s empowerment.

The two winners, who attended the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Public Sector Summit in Washington DC on June 20th, had the chance to attend various sessions to learn about how cloud technology is helping organizations transform and innovate, and met the C5 PeaceTech Accelerator team based in DC.

Mr. Hassan Jarrar said, “BisB is proud to be a sponsor of this competition, which is in line with our commitment to empower female leaders by investing in talent, providing equal opportunities to enable them to develop crucial skills in the workplace and beyond in order to impart a positive impact and build a sustainable future.

He added, “We are delighted to recognize the achievements and the high caliber of the submissions of Marwa Alfaihani and Noor Yusuf, and offer our congratulations as winners of this competition, further establishing the Kingdom of Bahrain as a hub of innovation and positioning women in leadership roles.”
