(Amman – October 2017) Bank of Jordan (BoJ) co-sponsored “Laila Baqili” Conference that was held under the Patronage of the Governor of the Central Bank of Jordan on Saturday, October 14th, 2017 at Landmark Hotel.

The event, organized by Sisterhood is Global Institute (SIGI), reviewed the march of pioneering women in the banking and financial sector and the challenges they faced along the way.

Several workshops were organized on the sidelines of the conference aimed at exchanging views and experiences. The meeting also served as a platform for putting forward proposals that would help advance working women’s careers in the financial, banking, accounting, and insurance fields.

In recognition of the contribution of women employees to the Bank’s success, five of BoJ female employees who have served for over twenty years were honored during the ceremony.

It is worth noting that co-sponsoring the event derives from the Bank’s strong belief in the importance of empowering women and keenness to back competent women in the banking industry.
