Injazat UAE Nationals complete Experiential Leadership Program for internationally recognized Cambridge Diploma.

Four Emirati candidates receive Aldar Leadership Excellence Applied Diploma (LEAD)

Injazat Data Systems has announced that it has recently concluded a successful leadership program where four of its UAE Nationals have gained an international diploma in Applied Leadership from Cambridge Judge Business School. A total of 10 Injazat candidates have now successfully graduated from this prestigious program, which focuses on developing core skills in Executive Leadership and Management.

The Injazat Institute (Ti2), a professional development initiative launched by Injazat Data Systems, sponsored the Leadership Excellence Applied Diploma (LEAD) program, managed and developed by ALDAR in collaboration with Cambridge University. The two-year program involved a collection of interactive workshops, training sessions delivered by world-class business speakers and assignments, culminating with the submission of a final business plan.
The program achieved a 100 per cent success rate as all 10 candidates were able to comply with LEAD requirements. This has reinforced Injazat’s reputation as a leader in the development and career growth of UAE Nationals in line with the Abu Dhabi 2030 vision. The very important milestone ensures Injazat’s sustained buildup of a talent pool of leaders capable of driving corporate growth in the coming years.
“Injazat is fully committed to supporting our UAE Nationals in developing the essential competencies for their current and future roles.  Ti2 focuses on developing the true business professional, providing technical, business and leadership development and supporting this through on-the-job operational experience. This program was undertaken to develop Injazat’s future leaders and it is a great achievement to see all our UAE Nationals successfully complete the intensive program and graduate with the Cambridge Judge Business School,” said Gary Hazel, Head of Training at The Injazat Institute (Ti2).
Injazat is also proud that of the 10 successful candidates, three were Emirati women who successfully gained the internationally recognized diploma. The participation of the Emirati Nationals is in line with Injazat’s strategy of supporting the UAE Government’s Emiratization program and providing professional development opportunities to the local workforce in line with Abu Dhabi 2030.
Statistics show that only 15 per cent of the UAE workforce is Emirati. While more than half of the country’s university graduates are women, they account for around 68 per cent of unemployed Nationals. Injazat has been helping address this imbalance by creating more employment and professional growth opportunities for Emiratis women.
“We are delighted that three Emirati women took part in this successful program and we celebrate their achievement as another important breakthrough in our ongoing efforts to support the UAE’s Emiratization program. I would like to reaffirm our commitment to providing exciting career growth opportunities to all UAE Nationals at Injazat through their Career Development Plans (CDPs), which are focused on current and future job roles and the subsequent competencies required. These women represent Injazat’s future and are themselves actively engaged in supporting their clients in various leadership roles to ensure that Injazat offers the highest level of services,” added Ibrahim Lari, CEO of Injazat Data Systems.

Dubai Judicial Institute hosts Anti-Money Laundering training session in collaboration with US Embassy.

Event serves as testament to the international community’s confidence in Institute’s role as a regional hub for legal and judicial excellence
April 22, 2012
Dubai Judicial Institute (DJI), a leading centre for legal studies and judicial training in Dubai and a member of the General Network for Government Communication, has launched today (Sunday, April 22, 2012) an Anti-Money Laundering (AML) training session for senior Pakistani government officials, under the supervision of leading professionals and experts from the UAE, US and Pakistan.

The five-day training session is a testament to the international community’s confidence in DJI’s role as a regional and international hub for legal and judicial excellence. It further demonstrates the solid relation between DJI and the US Embassy, reaffirming their joint efforts to create channels for sharing knowledge, expertise and best international practices.

The AML training session attracted 30 participants from the government of Pakistan, including representatives from the Ministry of Finance, Central Bank, Parliament, National Accountability Bureau, Anti Narcotics Force, Public Prosecution and many more, to look into various international standards, assess the existing practices and exchange experiences in dealing with money laundering. Hosting the AML training session underlines the UAE’s status as a leading hub for legal, humanitarian, social, development, cultural, economic and investment affairs.
“Held in collaboration with the US Embassy, the AML training session is very important as it acts as an interactive platform to look into local and international experiences and discuss the AML system application challenges,” said Dr. JamalHussein Al Sumaiti, Director General of Dubai Judicial Institute. “The session also investigates current developments in the field of anti-money laundering, with a focus on top international practices and standards to reduce such a menace that has made a negative impact on the global economy. DJI is committed to organizing purpose-built initiatives that support our vision towards best judicial practices, transparency and an improved judicial system for the UAE’s legal and judicial community, in line with the vision of H.H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, and H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai.”
Dr. Al Sumaiti added that money laundering has become a worldwide threat that requires joint efforts to establish standardized measures for accountability, pointing out the remarkable progress achieved by the UAE in reporting suspicious transactions with the newly issued AML law and tight restrictions on money transfer activities. He emphasized the importance of intensifying efforts to curb money laundering and ultimately reduce crimes.
“Being chosen by the US Embassy to host the joint AML training session reflects the UAE’s position in the world’s political and diplomatic landscape, while consolidating the growing confidence in DJI’s leading role to provide vocational courses and ongoing training programs in the region under the highest standards of quality and integrity, as well as to promote legal research and cultivate a judicial culture in the society. Through this session, we look forward to inform the participants from the Pakistani government about the UAE’s experience in its fight against money laundering and promote security and safety across financial and banking systems. We certainly hope to see more of these initiatives in the region to strengthen our presence around the world and to also support the comprehensive development initiatives of the UAE,” he concluded.
The Dubai Judicial Institute was established in 1996 to help educate and train aspiring judges, prosecutors and their assistants, legal experts and lawyers. DJI also offers habilitation programs for public prosecutors to enhance their efficiency. The Institute provides training and consultancy services to various public and private sector agencies and institutions and conducts local, regional and global research and studies on all areas of law and jurisdiction.

 The ICDL GCC Foundation has recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Riyadh-based General Secretariat of Arab Red Crescent and Red Cross Societies. The strategic partnership aims to raise digital awareness among Red Crescent and Red Cross establishments and further support their efforts to promote humanitarian work and volunteerism.

The agreement was signed at the Movenpick Hotel in Dubai by Abdullah bin Mohammed Al Hazza, Secretary General, Arab Red Crescent and Red Cross Societies, and Jamil Ezzo, Director General, ICDL GCC Foundation; as part of the 39thmeeting of the General Authority of the Arab Red Crescent and Red Cross Organization.

Under the partnership, Red Crescent and Red Cross personnel in the Arab world will be able to obtain the ICDL certification, which is recognized as a global standard for end-user computer skills, and receive incentives that will further motivate them to help in achieving the objectives of the MoU. Both parties have also agreed to cooperate in awareness campaigns targeting Red Crescent and Red Cross personnel about the importance of ICDL for both personal and professional development. The partnership also demonstrates a shared commitment to introduce pioneering projects that drive the economic and social development of GCC countries, focusing primarily on empowering the families of volunteers as part of a social responsibility effort with mutual support from both organizations.
Abdullah Al Hazza underlined the importance of the agreement with ICDL GCC Foundation to support the Organization’s efforts in enhancing computer skills and promoting IT awareness within Red Crescent and Red Cross establishments, while helping them promote humanitarian work and volunteerism in the Arab world with the use of modern technology and devices. He further noted the critical role of ICDL in the success of the partnership, being a leading entity in raising IT awareness and skills among all members of the society. Al Hazza also expressed his satisfaction with the cooperation with ICDL GCC Foundation to implement the ICDL program, which is the only IT certification in the world to be endorsed by United Nations Organizations. He said that the partnership will positively influence the performance of the Organization and enhance the impact of humanitarian work and volunteerism in the Arab world. He added: “We are confident that this move will provide a solid foundation for our efforts to improve the IT skills of our personnel. This will ultimately help improve the performance of the Organization and further drive our efforts to promote humanitarian activities in the Arab region.”
Jamil Ezzo stated that the strategic partnership with the Arab Red Crescent and Red Cross Organization is in line with ICDL’s commitment to cultivate the IT culture and support efforts to establish a knowledge-based economy. ICDL is fully committed to provide necessary support for the successful implementation of the ICDL program within the Red Crescent and Red Cross establishments, while raising greater IT awareness among volunteers and supporters of its charitable initiatives.
Ezzo added, “The Red Crescent and Red Cross Organization further strengthens our network of strategic partnerships with ministries, governmental authorities, major academic institutions, private organizations and civil society organizations in the GCC region and Iraq. Leveraging our expertise in implementing the ICDL program at the local and international level, we aim to promote digital competence within different Red Crescent and Red Cross departments and organizations. In light of the rapid advances in IT, we also look forward to further expand our cooperation with the Organization to serve more members of the community in line with our continuing efforts to establish strong partnerships, support economic growth, strengthen relations within local communities and enhance the quality of life in the Arab world.”
