At Strata, we have nurtured an environment that allows our people to thrive by sharing ideas, knowledge and experiences among a rich and diverse cultural fabric. Our success is underscored by our commitment to our greatest asset—our people, whose efforts are reflected in our status as a global Tier 1 aero-structures supplier based in the UAE.
One of Strata’s main objectives is growing a national workforce to help position Abu Dhabi as a global hub for international aerospace activity. Delivering on UAE Vision 2021 and Abu Dhabi Vision 2030, Strata takes its duty to help bring young Emiratis into the aerospace industry . As such, we offer professional development initiatives to ensure that Strata possesses a primed, yet distinct, workforce to drive the future of this dynamic sector.
We are proud to play this important role in developing the UAE’s manufacturing sector and creating new opportunities for UAE Nationals. Our Aero-structure Technician Training Program has graduated over 300 Emiratis since its inception in 2010, with UAE nationals making up over half (51%) of the current workforce— 86% of which are female. Women have a powerful presence at our facility in Al Ain; at present, 53% of Strata’s Team Leaders, as well as 59% of its Team Supervisors are Emirati women.
