Dr. Rascha Ragheb: Women in the National Training Academy
Regarding the training of women, Dr. Rascha pointed out that since the establishment of the academy in 2017 and with the graduation of approximately 33,000 individuals, the gender distribution among the qualified shows that at least 47% of them are females. Recently, the Women’s Leadership School was launched, featuring diverse programs targeting women of all ages up to 50, at all managerial and professional levels, both inside Egypt and abroad. This program is considered the first of its kind targeting Egyptian women beyond the borders of the country. Additionally, there is another program aiming to empower women in local communities as effective contributors to society.
In conclusion, Dr. Rascha announced a forthcoming program that will begin next month, focusing on preparing women for leadership positions inside or outside Egypt, whether as board members, heads of organizations, or other roles. The program will last for a year, including an intensive training period, representing a sustainable investment in women.
