As part of this commitment, Dhiraagu recently rolled out its Flex Work Policy and Returnship Guidelines. Women now comprise 46% of junior management roles within the company. Dhiraagu also reports an increase of women working in technical roles.

The event concluded with brunch provided by female-owned businesses belonging to the Women Entrepreneurs Association of Maldives. Supporting women-led enterprises is a significant element of Dhiraagu’s CSR strategy. This is evidenced by the company’s partnership with the Business Center Corporation (BCC) to support the Hiyala Weekend Market. This market offers female entrepreneurs a platform to promote and sell products.

Dhiraagu actively promotes a workplace culture free from gender discrimination and fosters a welcoming environment where all employees have growth opportunities.
