The Dubai Business Women Council invited a select number of influential people from across the region to attend a panel talk built around the theme of ‘Emirati Women in Business.’
Emirati businesswomen joining in the panel discussion in the special occasion
On August 28th 2019, The United Arab Emirates celebrated the fifth annual Emirati Women’s Day with special events, talks and gatherings across the region.
But one event that was particularly important was the Emirati Women In Business panel discussion held by The Dubai Business Women Council (DBWC) in collaboration with Dubai Economy.
With special guest speakers and a selected audience of business women from diverse industries – including A&E’s Editor In Chief, Lara Mansour Sawaya – the morning was one of intrigue and inspiration.
Hosted by the group’s president, Her Excellency Dr. Raja Al Gurg, the discussion saw input from the likes of the Director of Program Administration and Delivery Division at Emirates Institute for Banking and Financial Studies (EIBFS) Noura Abbas Ahmed, the Director of Government Communications at Federal Transport Authority Land and Maritime Dr. Aisha Al Busmait and the Founder of Tanshia, Anisa Al Sharif.
The discussion was moderated by Laila Mohammad Al Jassim, Knowledge Management and Innovation Director at Dubai Economy.
Since its establishment in 2002, the DBWC has been chaired by HRH Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein, Wife of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice-President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai and led by its President, HE Dr. Raja Easa Saleh Al Gurg, a very prominent businesswoman in Dubai and the region.
The non-profit organisation works to provide a platform for the personal and professional development of working women in Dubai and enhance gender equality in society by encouraging women to play an active role in the country’s development. The DBWC also provides education, tailored training and networking opportunities to aid in achieving holistic development and meeting career aspirations of UAE-based businesswomen – Emirati and expatriates alike.
