The Bahrain Institute of Banking and Finance (BIBF) has signed a strategic agreement with the Bahrain Businesswomen Society (BBS) to foster collaboration and empower Bahraini female entrepreneurs.
The BIBF will collaborate closely with the Bahrain Businesswomen Society to deliver tailored solutions and programs that cater to the specific needs of the society’s members, including workshops, training sessions, and knowledge-sharing events designed to enhance the member’s skills and capabilities.
According to the statement, “This strategic partnership holds great promise in nurturing the growth of women-led startups and promoting their role in driving economic growth.”
With the combined strengths of both entities, this collaboration is set to empower women entrepreneurs and professionals, paving the way for a brighter and more inclusive future in Bahrain’s business landscape.
Dr. Ahmed Al Shaikh, Chief Executive Officer of the BIBF, said that, “This partnership signifies the BIBF’s commitment to supporting the development of Bahrain’s business community, and we’re thrilled to join forces with the Bahrain Businesswomen Society to amplify women’s professional growth opportunities within the Kingdom’s entrepreneurial ecosystem.”
Ms. Ahlam Janahi, President of the Bahrain Businesswomen Society, noted that “the signing marks a significant milestone for our society, as we firmly believe that women play a pivotal role in Bahrain’s economic growth, and our partnership with the BIBF will enable us to provide our members with valuable opportunities for learning and growth. We eagerly anticipate a productive collaboration that will greatly benefit our members.”
In September, BIBF and the Islamic Development Bank Institute (IsDBI) entered into a collaborative initiative to provide specialized training programs aimed at strengthening the global Islamic finance community.
