It was truly an honor to participate in the “Women in Leadership Panel”
hosted by the Dubai Business Women Council on April 29th. I had the
opportunity to speak alongside female business leaders in the community
including Elissa Freiha, Co-Founder and Managing Director, WOMENA, and
MunaEasa Saleh Al Gurg, Director of Retail, Easa Saleh Al Gurg Group and Chairwoman, Young Arab Leaders UAE. The panel was moderated by Katie Fielder, News Anchor, Dubai One’s Emirates News.Elissa started her own female run business of angel investors and was listed as one of Arabian Business’ 100 most powerful Arab women in 2015 and 2016. Muna not only runs her family’s business alongside her two sisters, but has also founded ten lactation rooms for working mothers in business all over Dubai and teaches classes to women interested in learning more about finance. Key themes from the panel included: challenges and opportunities for women in the region, the need for resources for working mothers, required support from both male and female counterparts, the availability of tools to help achieve goals, and the importance of self-confidence. I am grateful to Nadine Halabi, Business Development Manager, and HE Dr. Raja Al Gurg, President Dubai Business Women Council for this incredible opportunity to share my personal journey. I hope the audience enjoyed the session as much as I did.

Launching and running own business is always a kind of challenge. And being a woman entrepreneur may raise in front of you even more questions you need to answer and go through.
DBWC gives a unique opportunity to find connections among, and inspiration from the same self-motivated and inspiring woman entrepreneurs from around the world.
I am fascinated with such events organized by DBWC as seminars, open panels discussions, workshops and networking, which are a great value to each and every member. Also, needless to mention the team of DBWC professionals who deliver the best quality cooperation and support to Business Women in Dubai.
Your input into opening new horizons and sharing positive vibes is tremendous, keep going like this!

"I have joined last September and fully immersed since then into the workshops and activities DBWC provide. Their content is of inmense value and set the standard of highest quality. The workshops are rich and deep in content and its personal approach makes learning easy, direct and enjoyable. They have enriched me with invaluable skills on a personal and professional level.
The networking opportunities have created ties for collaboration and new friendships. I am finding in DBWC much more than a council- rather a whole world of possibilities.
The DBWC is for me not only a platform or open club for business women but an oasis or home in a like minded community of warm, welcoming and active business women.Thank you to the highly proactive, very professional and authentically heart full team to bring all this energetic life into the council. You have created a whole positive world inside the DBWC and Dubai ."

I am proud to witness the DBWC’s exponential growth over the last few years and the high pedigree of women it continues to attract. Nadine and her team run the Council professionally and I see their drive and success at making it a forum to not only empower and educate female business leaders in Dubai, but a platform for support and mentorship amongst members. I need not mention how DBWC is positioning itself well on the global stage.
I am always delighted and honoured to contribute to the DBWC. It is indeed dear to me. I’ll steal this opportunity to encourage more women to be a part of what I see as a movement.

I had the privilege of addressing DBWC recently as was highly impressed by the professionalism and knowledge of the attendees. Our topic revolved around the art of telling stories and it was fascinating to see the delegates participate, learn and grow during the workshop. The overall environment at DBWC is positive, exciting and enlightening. I strongly suggest everyone to engage with the DBWC in whichever capacity possible.
