 IWD 2024

As a leader in the logistics industry for Middle East and Africa (MEA), I proudly celebrate International Women’s Day with the theme of Inspiring Inclusion. This theme resonates with our core values at DHL Group, Respect & Results, urging all leaders in the industry and region to embody these principles.

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging at DHL Global Forwarding (DGF) MEA has helped us accelerate growth to triple our size, achieve a customer satisfaction survey of over 80%, as well as over 90% of satisfied employees. Today, 60% of our business is managed by women leaders. 

For DGF MEA, inclusion serves as a powerful catalyst for surpassing business expectations and a means of enriching and serving our communities.

Further leaders at DHL inspire inclusion 

In a global business like DHL, the opportunities are endless.
