Our merit-based policies give equal opportunities for growth to all our employees, regardless of gender or background, cultivating a culture that is focused on high performance,” said Abdul Rahim. “Women play important roles throughout our institution as members of staff and management, and even at the board of directors level. Our success would not be possible without their contributions,” he said.
