World renowned property consultants Jones Lang LaSalle Pte Ltd (JLL) has signed a memorandum of understanding agreement with Effat University, a private non-profit institution of higher education for women in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, with the aim of encouraging female students to enter into the property sector. The move is another step forward for Vision 2030’s goal of encouraging Saudi women to enter into the work place, and in increasing employment opportunities for women in fields that have traditionally been relegated to men.
The memorandum was signed by Jamil Ghaznawi, Head of JLL KSA, and Dr. Haifa Jamal Al-Lail, President of Effat University. Under the agreement, JLL will educate students at Effat University via seminars, lectures, forums, meetings, training and conferences on the real estate sector in Saudi Arabia.
