In addition, the involvement of female employees in the PPKS Task Force also reflects AMMAN’s commitment to providing equal opportunities for career advancement and personal growth. Women’s prominent presence on the task force aligns with ‘Inspire Inclusion,’ the International Women’s Day 2024 theme. This theme celebrates differences, equality, and the importance of diversity in all aspects of society, including the workplace.
