DEWA workers learn about dining, etiquette and behaviour
Female employees at Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) have been getting lessons in etiquette.
Mohammed Al Marzouqi, an expert on etiquette, social behaviour and international protocol, delivered a three-day programme on the history of etiquette, fashion, social visits, protocol, dining etiquette and other subjects.
The workshop included information on table etiquette, buffet preparations and how to organise corporate dinners. The employees also discussed the definition of women’s etiquette and its roots in Arab culture.
The programme was organised by DEWA’s Women’s Committee.
Women’s Committee chairwoman Khawla Al Mehairi said: “The Women’s Committee has a process for empowering female professionals to improve their skills and capabilities in all fields. We succeeded in establishing an interactive platform for all female professionals to enhance their social activities.”
