Abdel Kader has been able to build a long record of achievements in transforming thought into action, which has led to the activation and deepening of sustainability policies by creating future initiatives, including her contribution to the establishment of a “sustainable” to encourage financial institutions towards sustainable development.
One of her most important contributions is the launch of the “Finance Humanization” approach, which introduces a new approach and vision for the financial industry that calls for the revision of traditional accounting systems and it has been introduced through TEDxAUC in 2013.
