Women entrepreneurs get business tips
UAE, May 29, 2013
Young and aspiring Emirati women entrepreneurs were motivated through the experience and advice of expert speakers at a forum today.
The first edition of the Emirati Young Women Entrepreneur Leadership Forum, organised under the patronage of Sheikha Latifa Bint Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, was inaugurated by the Zayed University in collaboration with Dubai Business Women Council (DBWC) and was held at Zayed University Dubai Convention Center, Dubai Academic City.
Raja Easa Saleh Al Gurg, president of Dubai Business Women Council, who was the keynote speaker at the forum, said: “Entrepreneurship remains one of the key elements in our continuing thrust for women empowerment in the UAE. By encouraging more women to be entrepreneurs, we are harnessing the largely untapped potential of women to become key contributors to the social and economic development of the society."
"DBWC is therefore looking forward to further strengthen our partnership with Zayed University and other like-minded institutions to organize several more initiatives that promote entrepreneurship among women. The Forum has actually received a very enthusiastic response from women of different social status, and this is a clear indication that we are moving in the right direction towards creating a new generation of successful women entrepreneurs in the UAE,” he added.
DBWC also organises the monthly event ‘Network Majlis’ to provide information about the latest knowledge, skills and best practices for women entrepreneurs and leaders, a statement said. - TradeArabia News Service
