Melania Trump visited the All-Women Business Process Services and IT Center in Riyadh where she met and spoke with some of its 1,000-strong female employees.
The first lady tweeted that she had been honored to meet the ‘incredible women’ staff of the GE Saudi center, where ‘great strides being made towards the empowerment of women.’
She is accompanying U.S. President Donald Trump on his first international visit since taking office in January, and told 200 female employees she tried to find balance between her role of first lady and mother.
“It is about finding the balance,” she told the women, who took pictures of her with their smartphones. Later on Twitter, she wrote “Enjoyed talking to the incredible women working hard @GE_Saudi service center. Great strides being made towards the empowerment of women.”
The center marked its fourth anniversary this year after it was founded to create jobs for Saudi women by TCS, Saudi Aramco and American multinational conglomerate General Electric (GE) in 2013.
Led by Dr Amal Fatani, the Business Process and IT Services Center supports GE Global Operations around the world in departments such as HR, accounting and IT.
Melania’s stepdaughter Ivanka was also in Saudi Arabia for the presidential trip.
She tweeted that she too had met with female Saudi Arabian leaders and ‘learned directly of their accomplishments, challenges & vision for the future.’
She also thanked the 12th President of the World Bank Group, Jim Yong Kim, for joining her for a ‘meaningful discussion with women entrepreneurs today.’
