Saudi Aramco, Wipro launch technology park for women - via Telecompaper

 

Saudi Aramco, Princess Nourah University (PNU) and Wipro Arabia, a subsidiary of Wipro, have inaugurated Saudi Arabia's first all women Business & Technology Park. The project is expected to create nearly 21,000 jobs for Saudi women over a period of ten years. The Women's Business Park (WBP) is a result of a joint venture between Princess Nourah University (PNU), the largest women's university in the world, and Wipro Arabia.

 

The Women's Business Park is envisioned to be the largest engineering drafting services, business process services and IT hub in the region for a number of industry sectors including Oil & Gas, Manufacturing, Government, Healthcare, Telecom and Construction. Wipro joined the partnership because of its experience in managing talent and providing IT services to a multi-industry customer base.

 

The joint venture will be responsible for developing the park's facilities and infrastructure as well as training and employing up to 21,000 Saudi women.
