A UAE-based social enterprise, Aurora50 works with organisations to achieve their DEI (diversity, equity and inclusion) goals, in line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 5 (SDG 5) of gender equality.
Aurora50 was co-founded by Sheikha Shamma bint Sultan bin Khalifa Al Nahyan and Diana Wilde in 2020 with a powerful vision: to achieve gender balance in the workplace.
Our first successful initiative has been to increase the number of women on boards in the UAE through the Pathway20 accelerator, and the Manarat invite-only club for regional women who are independent board directors. We have now expanded our focus to support listed corporations, large private organisations and high-growth businesses alike with all their DEI goals.
We conceptualise, design and deliver customised solutions, keeping impact at the core of everything we do. This is evident from the number of women on the Pathway20 accelerator now in board positions, positive behavioural changes induced through AIM (accelerator for internal management) and ESG (environment, social and governance) ratings increase for our clients.
