Tadawul recognizes the importance of supporting and mentoring the young women who are key to Tadawul’s future and is committed to improving the representation of women within the exchange. Female employees at Tadawul represent 24% of total employees.

Tadawul is also involved with a number of wider efforts to promote gender equality, it prides itself in being the first Saudi company to sign the Women’s Empowerment Principles in March 2019, and encourages the listed companies to empower female employees and maximize their participation level.
