Employee Stories from Emirates Nature in Association with WWF

About Emirates Nature in Association with WWF (EN – WWF):

Emirates Nature in Association with WWF is a non-for-profit, non-government entity charity that has been created under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan dedicated to the legacy of the history between Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the founder and late President of the UAE, who has been awarded by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) in honoring his integral work in nature conservation and preservation locally and globally.

We create, manage and implement projects in the UAE to ensure sustainability, environmentalism and conservation is practiced by the individuals across all demographics, the private sector and the public sector through not just funding, but through training and development, ideation sessions for solutions for nature, incubation sessions to turn these ideas to life, and through participating with us on the ground as volunteers to create a mass transformative impact at scale, as nature is our lifeline and the key to safeguarding our present and future resources.

Why is EN – WWF committed to being a parent-friendly workplace?

We believe that creating a core value system that matches the essence of philanthropy is essential to what our organization stands for – giving back to our natural ecosystems and the community. In as such, one of our values is integrity. We want to be able to practice what we preach, and a key to that is creating a workplace environment that allows our team to thrive. Our team is comprised of Emiratis and residents that have dedicated their lives to our vision, of whom all call the UAE their home for themselves and their families. A majority of the team, being parents, need to have the support system that enables a flexible workplace that allows them to be happy in their personal lives as well as their work life, making sure that they, as parents, can excel and feel fulfilled through providing their children with the key foundations for love, support, and physical presence. Much like nature, children need the utmost nourishment, as they are our future and our legacy, not just for each member, but our country.
