Mumtalakat signs up as partner for MFME 2021

MANAMA: Mumtalakat, Bahrain’s sovereign wealth fund, has signed up as a partner for the second edition of the Mentorship Forum Middle East (MFME) 2021.

The event themed ‘Prioritising Mentorship in a New World’ is scheduled to take place as a hybrid event in Bahrain in November.

As a partner, Mumtalakat’s vast experience in the field of training and development of human capital will play a key role in raising awareness of the importance of mentorship in accelerating career progression and professional growth for the next generation of business leaders in Bahrain and across the region.

Marwa Al Saad, human capital head at Mumtalakat, joins the forum’s think-tank that comprises prominent regional and international business leaders and talent development experts, who will assist in setting the event’s agenda.

In line with this year’s theme, topics to be explored will include workplace changes and challenges caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, gaps in training and development and the part mentorship can play in ensuring talent development goals are on track in the new working world.


Commenting on the partnership, Ms Al Saad said: “At Mumtalakat, we strongly believe that mentorship is vital to building an engaged and motivated team, and to fostering a high-performance culture that is fuelled by trust, transparency, inclusiveness, and a growth mindset. We are happy to partner with the Forum and look forward to exchanging expertise with counterparts on developing and furthering mentorship programmes that actively support and contribute to advancing employees’ skills, careers and overall development.”

The forum’s inaugural event in 2019 witnessed the participation of more than 250 senior HR and mentorship practitioners as well as C-suite leaders from across various sectors.

Similarly, this year’s event expects to bring together a strong line up of regional and international senior executives and HR experts who will participate in keynote addresses, panel discussions and lead practical workshops to promote knowledge sharing and hands on learning on the development and implementation of effective mentorship programmes.

Further details on the agenda, as well as information on a series of virtual roundtables that will be organised in the lead up to the main event to shed light on the topics and themes to be explored in November, will be announced soon.

The forum is also supported by lead partner National Bank of Bahrain and Netiks as a forum partner.
