The University of Faisalabad, Pakistan

Highly Commended

EM-Power for Women Welfare and Development

The University of Faisalabad (TUF) is committed for providing a work environment that ensures every employee is treated with dignity, respect and afforded equitable treatment. The University has been a pioneer with vision of “empowering women” through a defined tailored program for females. The Project runs with an aim to empower women in all capacities and bring them to the forefront as active contributors of success, not only the university but the entire nation, to achieve socio-economic sustainability.

The University extends its placement to hire women by providing them with a market-based salary, appreciation in the form of bonuses, study leaves, subsidised food, medical benefits, affordable housing, transportation, child day care and TUF social activities. Facilities provided by the university make it attractive for females not only in surrounding areas but also in remote areas where there are less opportunities for women to work.
