The Dubai Government Human Resources Department (DGHR) has signed a partnership agreement with the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in order to host a series of webinars focusing on different strategies and opportunities for advancing economic growth and enhancing global trade.

As part of the agreement, the DGHR hosted a series of webinars to address various topics, such as ‘Using Analytics for Future Skills’, ‘Job Quality in the Future of Work’, ‘Capability-Building Practices in the Public Service’, and ‘Promoting Gender Balance in the Workforce and ‘Generative Artificial Intelligence and the world of work.’

In addition to highlighting the challenges that have affected the international trade system, the webinars also featured keynote speakers and experts from top economies who offered their insights on best practices.

Abdullah Ali Bin Zayed Al-Falasi, Director General of the DGHR, said that the partnership comes as a step towards our goal of implementing international best practices to update policies about the empowerment of human resources, improve government performance, and enhance productivity, all of which will eventually boost Dubai’s competitiveness. The webinars by DGHR in this collaboration are highly significant as they provide insights from global experts while highlighting the economy and global trade, as well as the challenges and opportunities present.

Al-Falasi further added that, “These webinars also address a wide range of topics that are of interest to the business community, which includes entrepreneurs, merchants, suppliers, investors, as well as SMEs. These discussions also offer a unique opportunity to share approaches for promoting inclusivity and balance in the workplace and discover strategies for creating a more diverse and sustainable economic landscape. To maximize institutional efficiency and ensure that human development programs are in sync with current trends, they also focus on improving policies related to human resource empowerment, making these programs more compatible with the national goals.”

Iman Saleh Bin Khatam, Director of Policy and Program Support at DGHR, inaugurated the webinar on ‘Promoting Gender Balance in the Workforce’, and during her opening remarks, she presented an overview of the UAE’s initiatives to advance gender balance and highlighted its impact on various workforce policies and regulations.

The webinar also featured a series of panel discussions that delved into topics such as equal pay, non-discrimination, and career advancement opportunities.
