“Empowering women and youth is two main axes for achieving sustainable growth.”

- Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz 

Women constitute approximately 42% of the population of the Kingdom, and women work has become a driving force that attracts attention and expansion in the labor market, and this calls for emphasizing highlighting the importance of women in advanced societies in order to enhance the Kingdom’s vision and to contribute in raising the proportion of women in the labor market to 30% by 2030.

And because PBS CEO understands the importance of empowering women at work, she is keen to employ women, as women represent 74% of our company’s staff. It is also keen on developing the talents of Saudi women, investing their energies and creating a work environment to enable them to obtain appropriate opportunities to build a successful future and to contribute to the development of our society and our economy.

Our company has launched workshops, training courses and projects concerned with the empowerment of women, such as Raeda Watan Project, which allows women entrepreneurs and leaders to learn the latest global trends in creativity in entrepreneurship and leadership.
