Innovative HR Solutions Brings MBTI to Lean In Pakistan 2017
Dawood Global Foundation (DGF) and the British Deputy High Commission, Karachi partnered to host Lean In Pakistan Circle Luncheon 2017 powered by LADIESFUND for women professionals and entrepreneurs at the British Deputy High Commission, Karachi.
The Consultancy Team of Innovative HR Solutions was asked to fly to Karachi and to conduct an engaging and interactive Myers-Briggs MBTI session on “How Understanding Your Personality Can Lead To Career Success.” Leading these sessions were Senior Organisational Psychologists Sharan Gohel, Humaira Anwer, Liesl Connolly as well as Managing Director, Amanda White and Consultant Susie Kelt.
“Lean In” which is the highly praised global movement by Sheryl Sandberg COO of Facebook, was introduced to Pakistan and endorsed by Sheryl last year and has since become the biggest Lean In Circle meeting in the MENA region and South Asia. More than 100 women professionals and entrepreneurs from leading multi-nationals, retail, medical, accountancy, legal sectors, NGOs and youth programmes gathered to form professional friendships, meet potential clients and build/strengthen their network for career advancement purposes.
President of Dawood Global Foundation, Tara Uzra Dawood said, “On behalf of Dawood Global Foundation, thank you for “leaning in together” with us. Our theme is strengthening women's inclusion in the work force and encouraging women to pursue and achieve their ambitions."
The funds generated from this event have contributed towards the charitable efforts of DGF for women advancement. To date, DGF has educated 1000 deserving girls in Karachi and 250 in Lagos, Nigeria, to become journalists through its award-winning Educate a Girl project.
