The UAE’s first women-only employment portal, Women First Jobs, has officially launched, marking a significant milestone in enhancing female participation in the workforce of the United Arab Emirates. The innovative platform, founded by Priyanka Sengar, is poised to revolutionize the recruitment landscape by exclusively catering to female professionals seeking careers in the banking, fintech, edtech, hospitality, healthcare, food, logistics, and IT sectors.

The recruitment platform’s goals align with the vision set out by Her Highness Sheikha Manal bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, President of the UAE Gender Balance Council. The council’s initiatives include:

  • Achieving pay parity.
  • Advancing gender equality throughout recruitment and career progression.
  • Integrating gender balance perspectives.
  • Fostering transparency.

Women First Jobs will also assume a crucial role in supporting corporate returnship programs by providing mentorship and training to women re-entering the workforce after maternity breaks or career hiatuses. The initiatives underscore the platform’s unwavering commitment to creating an inclusive and supportive professional atmosphere for women at all career stages.

Finally, Women First Jobs plans to allocate a substantial portion of its proceeds to global non-governmental organizations, with a primary focus on the development of women and children. The initiatives not only support localization efforts but also align with the mandates of GCC governments in areas such as Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), Environmental, Social, & Governance (ESG), and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

After launching the generative AI model Firefly last year, Adobe is now showcasing how the technology will be used in upcoming versions of the editing app Premiere Pro. In an early sneak peek, the company demonstrated several new features, including Object Addition and Removal, Generative Extend, and Text to Video.

The first new feature, Generative Extend, targets a common video editing problem by using AI to “Seamlessly add frames to make clips longer, so it’s easier to perfectly time edits and add smooth transitions”.

Meanwhile, Premiere Pro’s Object Addition & Removal tool will leverage Firefly’s generative AI to “Simply select and track objects, then replace them. Remove unwanted items, change an actor’s wardrobe or quickly add set dressings such as a painting or photorealistic flowers on a desk,” Adobe states.

Adobe also showcased another new feature that can automatically generate new film clips using a text prompt. To use the content creation tool, editors can “Simply type text into a prompt or upload reference images. These clips can be used to ideate and create storyboards, or to create B-roll for augmenting live action footage,” Adobe explained. The company seems to be commercializing this particular feature extremely quickly, considering generative AI video only appeared a few months ago.

The new additions to Premiere Pro will be added later this year, but Adobe is also introducing smaller improvements to the editing app in May. The changes include interactive fade handles to enable easier transitions, an Essential Sound badge that uses AI to “automatically tag audio clips as dialogue, music, sound effects or ambience, and add a new icon so editors get one-click, instant access to the right controls for the job”, along with effect badges and a new look for waveforms in the timeline.
