- PRESS RELEASE
International Bank of Qatar (ibq) is the Strategic Partner of the upcoming How Women Work conference which will be held in Qatar on March 6 and 7, 2013 at Renaissance Hotel, City Centre, Doha.
Recently in 2012, ibq and How Women Work community announced their strategic partnership based on which the bank will support the conference for the third year running following the sponsorship of the How Women Succeed book which was launched in the fall of 2011 in Doha.
Jabra Ghandour, Managing Director of ibq said: "We congratulate the How Women Work team on their brilliant efforts to see another edition of their highly acclaimed conference taking place in March with growing interest from both attendees and speakers. This has been a very encouraging point for us at ibq and it is to that effect that we have strengthened our partnership with this community by being a Strategic Partner stemming from our belief in the growing and significant role ladies are playing in our community. This initiative in general also ties in perfectly with our bespoke banking solutions the ibq Ladies Banking products which aim at providing this segment with an all-encompassing and customized service to both their personal and professional needs. We are looking forward to an inspiring edition of the conference."
"Encouraged by the clearly stated aims for women in Qatar's National Vision 2030 and the National Development Strategy, we continue to empower women in Qatar to grow and succeed. Classical male forums, like the majlis, allow men to have the opportunity to network and promote themselves and exchange ideas. We take active steps towards moving more women into leadership positions and self-determined career paths by giving them their own forums to network develop and thrive," says Carolin Zeitler, Founder of HWW.
The HWW Community aims to empower women to grow and succeed. To that end, HWW hosts a variety of events throughout the year that include workshops, coaching and Mastermind sessions. The main event of the year is the annual How Women Work Conference, a popular professional development event for the women of Doha that takes place every year in early March.
The conference has a unique interactive and localized format that is built on the principle that "every woman has a voice"; breakout sessions with small numbers of participants, 90-second pitches, advisory and one-to-one coaching sessions all give opportunity to make these voices heard. The 2013 edition will revolve around impactful topics such as the power of change; sales; social enterprise; emotional intelligence and success; leadership; branding and media; career development and redevelopment; choosing your business; showing your talents; the power of imagining your future and creating your fortune.
The localized format ensures that participants get information that is relevant to them in their specific context. All the speakers at HWW are highly accomplished professionals, who have lived and worked in Doha and understand the unique challenges and opportunities. On March 6 and 7, the conference will host Vani Saraswathi, esteemed editor in Qatar, Florence Verzelen, GM at GDF Suez, Claire Harris, VP Gas Development at Qatar Shell, Muneera Al Dosari of Qtel and, as one of the two keynote speakers, Fairouz Ziani of Al Jazeera.
Throughout the year, the community interacts on the various social media forums that HWW has created, in the monthly workshops that are offered in collaboration with QPWN and VCU Qatar and through various coaching and Mastermind offers.
