- PRESS RELEASE
Minister of State Dr Maitha Salem Al Shamsi discusses key strategies to enhance women empowerment when focusing on youth development in the UAE; expresses her support and endorsement for upcoming Women In Leadership Forum.
At the meeting, which took place recently at the Minister's office in Al Ain, Her Excellency expressed Her full support towards developing women in the economy.
"It is crucial to make sure we provide key strategies for how women and the new generation can develop themselves and reach higher positions in society. This forum is a gateway for attendees to gain the necessary building blocks to assist with their career and business advancement," said Her Excellency Dr Maitha.
Currently, only 59% of the available female workforce is engaged in employment in the UAE. In keeping with such figures, the forum takes a regional look at what governments are doing to support 'womenomics' - primarily by assessing the UAE's role as a benchmark for the region and measuring the economic advancement which results from developing female talent.
Her Excellency Dr Maitha heads another initiative focused on developing the youth generation - the Marriage Fund Institution. Since its establishment, the fund has helped build thousands of consolidated families and provides the type of stability which will help nurture and ensure the development of the new generation.
"When pursuing the objectives of the Marriage Fund, we clearly understand the ultimate goals are to build and maintain a stable and consolidated Emirati family. This is perfectly in line with the UAE's aspirations to enhance the Emirati social and demographic structure within the country," she added.
The forum, organised by French business information company naseba, is taking place on November 21st and 22nd 2012 at The Westin Hotel in Dubai. Focusing on five key elements of development—leadership, Emiratisation, innovation, sustainability and youth development—leading regional and international speakers will provide attendees with a local and international perspective on the issues at hand.
In addition, Sophie Le Ray, Chief Executive Officer of naseba, noted: "This year's forum is a global edition in which UAE nationals along with international high-profile attendees can create synergies, which will create maximum opportunities in terms of both knowledge and business."
