Dubai: The fourth edition of the Arab Women Leadership Forum will focus on the theme ‘Towards Global Competitiveness’ on November 4 and 5 at the Godolphin Ballroom in Emirates Towers Hotel.

Dubai Women Establishment (DWE) on Sunday announced the dates for the fourth edition of the two-day forum and its theme.

Held under the patronage of His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai; and led by Shaikha Manal Bint Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, DWE President, the forum is a flagship conference that is an invaluable platform for the discussion of significant topics that promote professional development and career advancement among women.

The forum will feature nationally and internationally recognised speakers, accomplished women role models and career coaches, as well as provide a networking opportunity for the highly motivated conference attendees.

Commenting on the occasion, Shaikha Manal said: “The recent emergence of the UAE’s ranking in international reports on education, innovation and competiveness is a keen indicator of our nation’s progress, made possible due to the noble vision of our wise leadership, who have consistently fostered a culture of creative and innovative thinking to compete successfully on a global scale while simultaneously raising living standards for the local public.”

Shaikha Manal said the forum aims to recognise the vital role that women play in promoting the competitiveness of the state and lay the groundwork for additional programmes that will help empower them so that they can be a strong partner in the race towards global competitiveness.

The forum speakers, who range from regional and international experts in the field of women leadership and global competitiveness, will share cases studies and examples of high-ranking countries on the Global Competitiveness Report 2013.
