Qatar Insurance Group (QIC), the leading insurer in Qatar and the MENA region was honored at the graduation ceremony of the eighth cohort of the “kawader Malia” program, for its outstanding contribution towards supporting the development of young Qataris and its commitment to shaping the country’s future workforce.
Held at the four seasons hotel in Doha Last Wednesday on May 24th, the ceremony saw the program award certificates to 72 distinguished students. The graduates completed extensive training programs in leading Qatari institutions that equipped them with knowledge and skills to lead and thrive in fields critical to national development.
In November 2022, QIC signed a MoU with Qatar Finance and Business Academy (QFBA), committing to support its ‘Kawader Malia’ program for three years. In January this year, QIC welcomed a group of trainees which included Ghanim M. Al-Ghanim, Saleh K. Al-Mohannadi and Maryam N. Al-Fadala for a 12 week program that followed a well-rounded approach that combines orientation sessions, experiential learning and mentorship, designed to help the trainees gain hands on real-world experience, professional skills and insight into crucial aspects of the sector so that they can transition seamlessly into the workforce. The MoU reinforced the mutual commitment of both signing entities to develop and foster Qatar’s national human capital.
Receiving the award on behalf of QIC Group was Mr. Rashid Al-Buainain, QIC Group Chief Administrative Officer who remarked, “We congratulate the graduates of the eighth cohort of the Kawader program on their outstanding achievement and share in their excitement as they embark on new journeys that will no doubt have positive impact on Qatar and the world. Seeing their commitment and dedication to hard work tells us that Qatar’s future is in good hands, and we are proud to have a hand in shaping it. We remain eager to continue to support initiatives that contribute effectively to the human development of the country’s financial services sector and more broadly the realization of the ‘Qatar National Vision 2030’ which entails preparing Qatari youth to take on the world’s challenges and become tomorrow’s innovators, entrepreneurs, and professionals”.
