FedEx empowering women in male-dominated cargo industry

Updated: Mar 20

FedEx has been working to empower women in what is perceived to be a male-dominated sector, and to advance their careers through training and mentorship, Maryam Issy, Manager, Global Service Provider Operations, FedEx in Middle East, Indian subcontinent and Africa (MEISA) region, based in Dubai, said.

FedEx has an Equal Opportunity Policy, ensuring no team member receives unfair treatment on the grounds of gender, age, or nationality when applying for a position or accessing mentorship or development opportunities. “With this mindset, you can seize the right opportunities to grow your career.

I feel empowered, supported and respected at FedEx, and now, I am happy to mentor and help train other women too,” she averred. Issy has risen through the ranks, with an impressive career which began in 2007 as a part-time customer service agent. Today, her role as a manager sees her handling operations across 22 countries, from Qatar and Pakistan to Morocco and Tunisia, to name a few.
