Ooredoo Oman’s 23rd Springboard program has successfully trained over 200 Omani women, strengthening and empowering them to leverage their talent and skills to achieve their aspirations and become future business owners.

Providing training opportunities across the country, Springboard was created by women, for women, and promotes the inclusion of Omani women in the workplace. This year, Springboard welcomed participants from various government and private institutions as part of a collaborative effort with various Omani women’s associations in South Al Batinah, Wilayats of Nakhal and Al Awabi.

Springboard is seen as a benchmark for successful public-private sector collaboration. As part of this initiative, an agreement was established to launch a program—Otaxi—to empower female taxi drivers. Additionally, Ooredoo partnered with OMRAN, a leading entity in the tourism and hospitality sector, to empower a group of its female employees.

This partnership aims to provide these women with the necessary skills and knowledge to excel in their roles and contribute to the company's growth. The training program, which will continue over a period of 3 to 4 months, includes a series of workshops and practical sessions.

By building skills and providing the right tools, the course helps to propel women into the world of work, including entrepreneurship. In doing so, this helps them contribute to the development of the national economy while creating a positive and sustainable impact on future generations.

Focused on giving back to local communities, Ooredoo’s Springboard program falls under the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Goodwill umbrella. Notably, since the inception of this educational program, Ooredoo has provided professional development opportunities to over 8,000 Omani women.
