Qiyadat Global-Georgetown Program Honors First Batch of Female Graduates in Saudi Arabia

Last year, the Qiyadat Global - Georgetown program was launched, a women's leadership program in collaboration between the Qiyadat Global program in Saudi Arabia and Georgetown University, a renowned private university in Washington D.C., United States. Less than a year on, this milestone program is honoring its first batch of female graduates, reported to be 200 from 20 countries.

The graduates were honored this week in the Kingdom’s capital Riyadh for successfully completing the program that focuses on developing leadership skills when it comes to key areas, such as decision-making, organizational change management, interaction with stakeholders, and organizational performance.

Qiyadat Global - Georgetown is described on its website as “a Saudi-American collaboration,” one that has been designed to empower and prepare emerging women leaders in the Middle East and from G20 member nations. The program is focused on providing participants with “practical strategic leadership skills for effectively managing common hurdles including a number of unique challenges faced by women leaders.”

According to Georgetown University’s website, this certified program was created to respond to “the continued demand and need of diverse organizations to develop the leadership acumen of their female leaders.” Qiyadat Global - Georgetown is in essence a certified program for female middle-managers who have shown strong leadership skills in business organizations, in government, and in NPOs and NGOs, providing them with the knowledge and tools they need to take on more senior leadership positions.

According to Nouf Abdullah Al Rakan, the Founder-Executive Director of Qiyadat Global - Georgetown, there exists a growing demand for organizations in the region to develop the leadership skills of their female employees, and programs such as Qiyadat Global – Georgetown are here to answer that need.
