Dana Women’s Banking, Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank’s (ADIB) specialized banking division for women in the UAE, made a presentation on financial education at a symposium on the sidelines of the Women as Global Leaders 2012 conference.
The conference was organised by Zayed University under the patronage of Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak. ADIB was also gold sponsor of the event.

The presentation provided tips to help women develop budgets, how to save, how to manage debt, and how to invest and to build personal wealth.
“The Women as Global Leaders 2012 conference is a global leadership conference dedicated to young women to provide them with a vision, strategies, environment, skills and network needed to succeed in today's global world,” said Bayari.
“We are proud to support this conference that is in line with our commitment to empower women. Our presentation on financial education is in line with our strategy to help people take responsible financial decisions.”
ADIB launched a dedicated service for women, Dana, in response to the fast growing banking needs of women customers, business owners and entrepreneurs in the UAE.
