DWE launches Arab women leadership forum site
Dubai, January 4, 2009
Dubai Women Establishment (DWE) on Sunday officially launched the website for the Arab Women’s Leadership Forum, which runs from January 13 to 14.
The bilingual website (www.awlf.ae) provides information on the program, workshops, participants, details of the speakers and is open for media registration as well.
The inaugural Arab Women’s Leadership Forum comes as part of the strategic goals of DWE to build the capacity of Arab women, said a DWE official.
Lamia Khan, corporate communicate director, DWE urged people to register online through the forum website or the establishment website www.dwe.gov.ae where it has a link to the forum.
"Participation in the forum which is held under the title 'Women and Leadership: Global Trends and Local Innovations’ is limited. Therefore I call upon everyone to hurry up to fill up the registration form by January 8,” she pleaded.
Lamia said Shaikha Manal Bint Mohammed Al Maktoum, president of Dubai Women Establishment, had given instructions to open registration for more UAE women and college students to enable them to attend and benefit through the forum.
Since its launch in 2006, the DWE has initiated several programmes for the benefit of women with the active participation of private and public sector entities.
Among its multi-pronged objectives, DWE particularly aims to ensure that Emirati women pursue an aggressive growth agenda for better contributing to the holistic growth of the UAE economy and the overall Gulf region, Lamia added.-TradeArabia News Service
