The activities were aimed at encouraging and involving Empower employees, especially female workers, to support efforts to increase awareness and educate people about the importance of having good breast health.

The activity ran from morning till afternoon, were Empower employees took part by sharing their talents in cooking homemade dishes and pastries. Also specially made handcrafted items were made by Pink Ribbon Crafters and were available to staff. The activity also involved a special talk given by a breast surgeon from Well Women Clinic which was also joined by cancer survivor, who shared her experience in dealing with breast cancer and how support groups like Breast Friends can help in the road towards recovery. 

Ahmad Bin Shafar, CEO, Empower, said, “The success of our activities in celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness Month demonstrates Empower's efforts to implement CSR initiatives that are in line with 2017 being named as the 'Year of Giving' and also with Dubai Plan 2021's goal of promoting a tolerant and inclusive society that embraces common civic values. Empower understands the need to increase awareness about breast cancer, which is why we have organized this activity-looking to make our employees more knowledgeable on maintaining good breast health and to promote good health and well-being as well.”
