Zain partners with WiDS Conferences in Kuwait, Lebanon to inspire, educate

March 12, 2019

Zain Group, the leading mobile telecom innovator in eight markets across the Middle East and Africa, announces its partnership and support of Women in Data Science (WiDS) Conferences held in Kuwait City and Beirut earlier this month. The two events were organized jointly by Kuwait’s Public Authority for Applied Education and Training (PAAET) and American University of Beirut (AUB) for their respective events, both in coordination and linked with the annual Global WiDS Conference held at Stanford University and an estimated 150 plus locations worldwide.
In recent years, Zain has heightened its strategic focus on women empowerment, promoting gender diversity and inclusivity within the company. The company’s support of the WiDS conferences is in line with this outlook, as both the Kuwait and Beirut-based events invited both genders to attend, which feature outstanding women doing outstanding work as well as attracting women leaders in the field of data science from across the Arab world and internationally.
