Maria Balbas, President of elev8, has been featured in Business Review discussing elev8’s vision to empower more women to develop key technical and power skills. 

As a recognized influencer in digital transformation in Qatar and beyond, Maria talks about the jobs of the future and what makes elev8’s programs stand out from other companies within the digital skilling sector:   

“What differentiates elev8 is that we have a strategic alignment with the digital agenda of the countries we work with, we provide skilling programs for employability… We want to support the creation of the jobs of the future and the roles that organizations need to be transformed, both in the public and private sectors.” 

Moreover, Maria explained how elev8, part of YNV Group, contributes to swinging the scales towards higher female participation within traditionally male-dominated industries. 

“We need to enhance women’s relationships and networks through industry-focused round tables or other types of events to expand women’s connections with other professionals within the industry and beyond.”
