Empowering the future

Breaking down barriers

Women at DP World

For historic reasons, the logistics industry has been male dominated. As we grow our business globally, it is time to leave gender stereotypes in the past and drive progress on a global scale. 

One of the fundamentals of DP World is to keep trade moving and grow prosperity. We are committed to breaking down barriers and ensuring that the obstacles facing our employees are overcome.

As a global trade enabler that provides career opportunities for both men and women, we’re unequivocal in saying that everyone should have the freedom to think big and build their own future - from the quayside to the C-suite. And it doesn’t get much bigger than keeping an entire global economy moving.



In this video series we introduce you to women across DP World who are helping make trade happen, challenging and revolutionising the industry and helping us shape the future for the better.

Their stories, their skills, their families, and the innovative contributions they make to our business is what helps us shape the future of trade.

Women at DP World

We are investing in our business around the world, driving best practices, innovating and measuring progress, always seeking to do more. In 2018, we launched two new pillars building on our commitments and using the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as our framework to find innovative solution to issues. 

One of our main pillars is Women’s Empowerment. By investing in our people and communities we are again playing our part to advocate on these issues.

We partner with leading organisations and local communities to support women in their right to education, employment and health.

DP World 4 Women


We want to celebrate women in the business and beyond. Shipping and logistics have been male-dominated industries, but there is great opportunity for change. We want to position DP World as a leader – the future of global trade – and highlight the roles women play in the business.

Creating change requires us all to listen and to be active listeners. Companies thrive when everyone feels they participate. We seek feedback from women to ensure that all talent can contribute. We will seek feedback from colleagues to understand where we can develop - be it with facilities, policies, training to drive gender equality.
