About Josour

ESCWA launched the Josour initiative, in partnership with the Sawiris Foundation for Social Development, the Union of Arab Banks, the Union of Arab Chambers, Pathfinders for Peace, Just and Inclusive Societies, Pharco Pharmaceuticals, and the Elie Saab Company, on 31 May 2022 at the first Arab Forum for Equality, held in Amman.

The initiative aims to reinforce commitment to creating opportunities for young men and women, and to strengthen their employability prospects by:

  • developing their skills
  • offering them the opportunity to acquire new skills amid the changing future of work requirements
  • enhancing their suitability for the job market

The initiative serves as a bridge between key stakeholders in the private sector and talented young men and women looking for opportunities in the Arab region. The opportunities that Josour provides include job openings, internship programmes, technical and vocational education and training opportunities, dialogue forums, and jobs and education fairs.
