We are delighted to report that Fatima Abdalla Al Fahim, one of Aurora50’s 2020 alumni, has been appointed as a board director to Abu Dhabi-based Arkan Building Materials Co PJSC (ADX: ARKAN), where she will also be a member of the audit and risk committee.
This is Fatima’s first board appointment since completing the programme, and
Aurora50 grabbed five minutes to ask Fatima a few questions about her new role.
What value did you get from working with Aurora50 ?
Aurora50 provided an introduction into a strong support network, comprising extremely accomplished and highly talented women to whom one can reach out to for guidance and mentorship throughout one’s career journey.
It has strengthened this network by involving individuals and organisations that are passionate about change and who recognise the potential value that women bring to the table. Aptly named, Aurora50 is heading towards the dawn of a new era in corporate governance across the private and public sectors within the UAE and the broader Middle East.
Congratulations Fatima, we know you will do a sterling job!
