Injazat UAE Nationals complete Experiential Leadership Program for internationally recognized Cambridge Diploma.



Four Emirati candidates receive Aldar Leadership Excellence Applied Diploma (LEAD)

Injazat Data Systems has announced that it has recently concluded a successful leadership program where four of its UAE Nationals have gained an international diploma in Applied Leadership from Cambridge Judge Business School. A total of 10 Injazat candidates have now successfully graduated from this prestigious program, which focuses on developing core skills in Executive Leadership and Management.


The Injazat Institute (Ti2), a professional development initiative launched by Injazat Data Systems, sponsored the Leadership Excellence Applied Diploma (LEAD) program, managed and developed by ALDAR in collaboration with Cambridge University. The two-year program involved a collection of interactive workshops, training sessions delivered by world-class business speakers and assignments, culminating with the submission of a final business plan.

The program achieved a 100 per cent success rate as all 10 candidates were able to comply with LEAD requirements. This has reinforced Injazat’s reputation as a leader in the development and career growth of UAE Nationals in line with the Abu Dhabi 2030 vision. The very important milestone ensures Injazat’s sustained buildup of a talent pool of leaders capable of driving corporate growth in the coming years.

“Injazat is fully committed to supporting our UAE Nationals in developing the essential competencies for their current and future roles.  Ti2 focuses on developing the true business professional, providing technical, business and leadership development and supporting this through on-the-job operational experience. This program was undertaken to develop Injazat’s future leaders and it is a great achievement to see all our UAE Nationals successfully complete the intensive program and graduate with the Cambridge Judge Business School,” said Gary Hazel, Head of Training at The Injazat Institute (Ti2).

Injazat is also proud that of the 10 successful candidates, three were Emirati women who successfully gained the internationally recognized diploma. The participation of the Emirati Nationals is in line with Injazat’s strategy of supporting the UAE Government’s Emiratization program and providing professional development opportunities to the local workforce in line with Abu Dhabi 2030.



Statistics show that only 15 per cent of the UAE workforce is Emirati. While more than half of the country’s university graduates are women, they account for around 68 per cent of unemployed Nationals. Injazat has been helping address this imbalance by creating more employment and professional growth opportunities for Emiratis women.

“We are delighted that three Emirati women took part in this successful program and we celebrate their achievement as another important breakthrough in our ongoing efforts to support the UAE’s Emiratization program. I would like to reaffirm our commitment to providing exciting career growth opportunities to all UAE Nationals at Injazat through their Career Development Plans (CDPs), which are focused on current and future job roles and the subsequent competencies required. These women represent Injazat’s future and are themselves actively engaged in supporting their clients in various leadership roles to ensure that Injazat offers the highest level of services,” added Ibrahim Lari, CEO of Injazat Data Systems.
