Woman, engineer, muslim
Nihale evolves in a masculine world. Being the only woman in her department, she does not feel discredited, on the contrary. "Here, I'm judged only on my work and my performance," she says. Audi Brussels is known for its diversity and, day after day, more and more women come to develop their career serenely. "It is true that during my studies at UCL, girls were rather rare in my class, unlike the engineering school in Morocco. It was the opposite," she remarked. In Belgium, the figures clearly indicate that, while female students are the majority of all university students, they remain a minority in the scientific subsidiaries. The Audi Brussels factory has nearly 60 different nations of origins. Here, everyone rubs shoulders and works together. This is a great wealth for the company. Even if Nihale Saba admits, as a practicing Muslim, the Ramadan period is not easy, as in all mixed societies. "But the advantage at Audi Brussels is that employees can benefit from a flexible schedule. For me, it's a real ease to be able to adapt my working hours to my fast."
