DHL Is The First In The MENA Region To Hire A Female Courier and It's Kind-of a Big Deal

Who run the world? Girls!

A few years ago, it would’ve been odd sight to see a woman driving a cab, fixing the satellite dish or even delivering your mail. However, with the tide slowly turning on where women stand Egyptian society, more and more companies are working towards including women in the workforce and DHL is no different.

Being the leading global brand in logistics, DHL does everything from national and international deliveries, e-commerce shipping, and international express, to road, air and ocean transport for industrial supply chain management. The logistics tycoon has joined the recent feminist wave taking over Egypt and marked women’s day by celebrating its first ever female courier in Egypt and in the MENA region.

As part of a joint effort with the Egyptian government, a number of Egyptian companies have been hiring more women and working towards bringing the wider Vision 2030 initiative to life. Said initiative seeks to develop women’s role in the country's workforce as well as tackling the numerous social issues plaguing our society. Dubbing 2017 the year of the Egyptian woman, the country is taking several measure to ensure the inclusion of women in all societal aspects. Following suit, DHL takes pride in its role of being the first Arab employer to bring a female courier into its world of logistics.

Nasra, DHL’s newest addition, is excited at being the first Egyptian woman to break the courier mold.

“I am hopeful that this will encourage a lot of women to follow a diverse set of career paths, so long as they have the abilities and skills. I am proud to contribute to the pool of women overcoming hardships to break stereotypes that has long held us back from pursuing opportunities in the workplace” says Nasra.

Earning the title of best employer for the third consecutive year, DHL is determined to enable women by giving them equal opportunities. In providing a healthy environment that nurtures talent and skill, the company is set on empowering its women and encouraging innovation among all its employees. And true to its word, the fruits of this tycoon's labor are already apparent in their 25% increase of women hired every year, over the past 3 years.

We’re probably going to order a few things online just to meet Nasra.
