Federal Tax Authority meets gender balance standards with women making up more than 50% of its organisational chart

 

  • The FTA organised a series of events and activities to celebrate Emirati Women’s Day.
  • H.E. Khalid Al Bustani: Emirati women have played a pivotal role in developing the tax system.

 

Abu Dhabi, UAE - 27 August 2022 – The Federal Tax Authority (FTA) has succeeded over the past few years in meeting gender balance standards in its organisational chart, with women now making up more than 50% of the FTA’s team.

 

In a statement on Emirati Women’s Day, which is celebrated on 28 August of every year, FTA Director General His Excellency Khalid Ali Al Bustani said: “Since the launch of its operations, the Federal Tax Authority has succeeded in forming a highly qualified and professional team. We are proud of the significant role women have played, and especially Emirati women, in the Authority’s success over the past five years. Our team includes a distinguished group of female employees in all disciplines and at all organisational levels.”

 

H.E. Al Bustani congratulated Emirati women on this occasion, underlining the tremendous success they have achieved in all fields, setting an example with their dedication to performing their duties with the highest levels of efficiency. They play a pivotal role in supporting the UAE’s development and have proven their ability to assume responsibility towards their country and community, H.E. added.

 

“We are celebrating Emirati Women’s Day 2022 under the slogan ‘Inspiring Reality… Sustainable Future’ as an affirmation of the impressive achievements made by women,” the FTA Director General said at the Annual Women’s Forum the Authority organised for its female employees to mark the occasion. “It is essential that we preserve their advancements, which they have achieved with the guidance and full support of our wise leadership. This, in turn, is an incentive for women to make even greater contributions to the national efforts to shape a more prosperous and sustainable future. Women are a key pillar of the nation, and they continue to prove, day after day, their competence and excellence in the tasks they perform.”

 

H.E. reaffirmed the Authority’s commitment to implementing its policies designed to maintain gender balance in the workplace and build a sustainable future for Emirati women, in line with the UAE’s ‘Principles of the 50’ and the new approach to government work, as a means to maintain the national development process.

 

“As with every other field where they have excelled, Emirati women have played a pivotal role in developing the tax system over the past few years,” H.E. Al Bustani noted. “The Federal Tax Authority sought to implement a comprehensive strategy to manage its human capital and give priority to recruiting and empowering national tax professionals with extensive knowledge and great prospects for career development. The strategy has succeeded in driving continuous growth in Emiratisation rates, and in meeting gender balance standards within the FTA’s organisational chart, where Emirati women now make up a sizeable percentage of personnel, especially in leadership positions.”

 

The Women’s Committee at the Federal Tax Authority organised a series of events over the past week to celebrate Emirati Women’s Day, with a large number of its female employees participating. These included the annual Women’s Forum, as well as a panel discussion on ‘Inter-Generational Dialogue and Pioneering Women’, featuring H.E. Hessa Tahlak, Assistant Undersecretary for Social Development at the Ministry of Community Development, and Sara Falaknaz, Member of the Federal National Council (FNC). The session was moderated by Amal Al Sahlawi, Head of the FTA Women’s Committee.

 

The agenda also included a poetry session on theatrical poetry, attended by Emirati poet and researcher Dr. Afra Atiq, Vice President of the Emirates Reprographic Rights Management Association (ERRA).
