“We ensure that local and foreign women are treated equally,” explains Awaisheh.
“They are protected and they know their rights. We empower them to pursue their dreams within our work environment.
“We do this in different ways, from flexible working hours to equal pay and opportunity, training and childcare provision.
“We want to make our foreign team feel as if they’re in their second home, so we encourage them to decorate and paint the factory in themes from their hometown.
“Female students are given the means to continue studying and working to encourage financial independence.
“Counselling and awareness on mental health are provided to the employees and we have scheduled listening activities to better understand the needs of our immigrant women.
“For example, the illiterate women asked to learn how to read and write, so we arranged to bring in a teacher and a curriculum in their own native language to help them learn to read and write.
“That was really empowering.”
