STEMinism, SDGs and inovation

 The 4th Edition of The Arab Women in Leadership and Business Summit

Feminization- Only in a workplace where Men and Women meld their unique styles of leadership, can a strong leadership team be formed which is fierce enough to compete in today’s marketplace, as by combining the leadership styles, the organization can maximize the opportunities and minimize the threats. The rise of women into positions of power has created “feminization” of leadership which is reflected in the increasing importance of emotional intelligence, people skills and flexibility. The demand of today’s generation is aligned to the skill-set of female leadership styles. The gathering would encourage women to be visionaries, be visible, be vocal and add value, to move beyond their comfort zones and reinvent themselves.

STEMinism- STEM workforce is crucial to UAE’s innovative capacity and global competitiveness.Hence, it is very imperative for UAE organizations to support women and maintain a robust network of female professionals. There are numerous opportunities for women in STEM, hence the gathering will bring together eminent women to inspire aspiring women and capitalize on the wealth of experience gained through the setbacks and achievements throughout their career. These industry icons will enlighten progressive path of career in STEM as they have already proved their mettle and our future generation look upto them. The exclusive gathering will help advance current gender-focused initiatives including encouraging training and hiring for employee diversity, and continue to give back to the community through STEMinism.
