One of Bank of Palestine’s strategies focuses on empowering women to enter Palestine’s labor market and encourage her to join the ranks of the workforce. The inclusion of women in the workforce would enforce social cohesion and boost economic welfare in Palestine. 

Bank of Palestine strategy for supporting women inclusion in the labor market took many forms:

Gender Inclusion
Bank of Palestine’s internal strategy aims to refurbish existing policies and add new guidelines to advance gender inclusion. Following a well-devised path to achieve a more gender-balanced workplace, Bank of Palestine has increased the percentage of female employees to total staff from 17% to 32% between 2007 and 2015, aiming to increase this percentage to reach 50% by the end of 2020. Furthermore the Bank's aim for gender inclusion emphasizes on the vital importance of appointing women to senior and decision-making positions.

Women Empowerment
On the external front, Bank of Palestine designed a women markets initiative that aims to target all women, including women entrepreneurs and business owners, women in employment and women at home, through developing services which meet their different needs. Moreover, developing the financial inclusion program under the non-financial advisory services unit, enabling women to understand how to perfect financial management for development. These financial inclusion workshops took place at the Bank's training facilities across Palestine.
