The Western Region Development Council (WRDC) of Al Gharbia, the Western Region of Abu Dhabi, has launched a professional development network for women.
The network, part of WRDC’s Women in Technology Program, offers a dedicated strategy providing training and enhancing development skills for women.
Financed by Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI) of the US State Department and in collaboration with the West Coast Centre of the Institute of International Education (IIE) as the main financier, the project will provide a major impetus to women entrepreneurship in Al Gharbia.
The Network will focus on shaping career options and creating an alumni group for women with the support of General Women’s Union and the WRDC.
“The launch of the Professional Development Network is a major step towards our efforts to create more career and internship opportunities for women in Al Gharbia,” stated Mohamed Hamad Bin Azzan Al Mazrouei, director general of WRDC.
The network will also unveil its dedicated website soon, which will facilitate information and knowledge sharing and participation from women across Al Gharbia and other emirates.-TradeArabia News Service
