Mary Ratzki and Salma Al Asaad play “trust cups,” an activity designed to work toward building a high trust relationship between mentors and mentees.

Mentorship programs around the world have been proven to be an effective way to transfer knowledge from one individual to another.

Passing on knowledge is particularly important here at Saudi Aramco. With 54% of our employees under the age of 35, and 28% between the ages of 45-60, the need to retain best practices is imperative. Mentorship relationships pass on company knowledge, culture, and best practices, along with creating a higher job satisfaction for both mentor and mentee.

Employees in the early stages of their career seek mentors to better understand company culture. Mentorships help keep employees at the beginning of their career happy while also producing company loyalty. The extra feedback and people conversations add a new dimension to both the mentee and mentor’s career.

In alignment with Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030, the Women Development and Diversity Division (WD&DD) here at Saudi Aramco has created a pipeline to assist in developing the women at Saudi Aramco. HRH Mohammad bin Salman bin ‘Abd al-‘Aziz Al-Sa’ud, President of the Council of Economic and Development Affairs, said it best in the 2030 vision: “Our real wealth lies in the ambition of our people and the potential of our younger generation.”

The WD&DD Mentorship Program connects female colleagues with experienced mentors to help build and develop their professional skills, share best practices, set goals, and enhance their network. Studies show that mentoring and networking opportunities help women advance more quickly and effectively in business.
