TRA Bahrain is supporting women in telecoms in a number of ways.

Bahrain's Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) has signed a new memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Royal University for Women (RUW).

The MoU is aimed at strengthening the frameworks of cooperation and effective partnership between them. The signing of the MoU comes on the sidelines of the initiative launched by TRA during the year to support promising university research for the telecommunications sector. 

Under the terms of the MoU, the two parties will work in the coming period to strengthen cooperation through their participation in ongoing awareness programmes and public consultation, informing them of the latest developments in the field of telecommunications and providing them with relevant periodicals. The mechanism of implementation between the two parties also included the formation of joint working groups.

"TRA pays attention to the academic programs that support the telecommunications sector in the Kingdom of Bahrain. Through this strategic partnership, we are keen to maintain constructive communication with educational institutions to enrich their programs. This is as part of the TRA’s efforts to develop students' skills and qualify them for the labor market in the telecommunications sector." said Sh. Mohammed bin Salman AlKhalifa, TRA Bahrain director of finance, information technology and human resources

RUW dean of the College of Art and Design Dr Shweta Kinra said: "The MoU between the RUW and TRA is part of our commitment to develop the level of vocational training, which will create new opportunities for students and educational staff to provide them with advanced skills and enhance the labor market with qualified cadres.”

The MoU was signed by AlKhalifa and Dr Kinra at the TRA’s headquarters.
