Alkhudair’s social enterprise is focused on connecting flexible employers with the kingdom’s 1.6 million women who are currently looking for work. By his own estimates, the company has found employment for 26,000 women, while many more have found support through the firm’s advice services and events. The CEO says this year’s Glowork career fair attracted around 60,000 women and 300 companies, including McKinsey and General Electric.
