A group of HCT-Sharjah Women’s College (SWC) students, from the Foundations, Business and Health Science Faculties, attended the 4th Arab Women Leadership Forum (AWLF) at the Emirates Tower Hotel in Dubai.
The event focused on strengthening the role of women and their contribution to the economy, aiming to inspire future generations of women to actively participate in nation building.
The AWLF Objectives are:
- To encourage Emirati women to pursue a proactive growth agenda that positively impacts the UAE economy
- To create awareness, as well as actions, on subject matters that influence directly or indirectly Arab Women within the economy
- To highlight the positive, rapid progression of the role of Arab Women in developing society
- To create awareness of women’s best practice in the region
Students had the great opportunity to network and meet speakers and guests from a variety of different countries. All agreed that it is important to attend this type of conference which offers the chance to network and maintain motivation in this area.
