MENA Summit 2018
Women in the Workforce Private Lunch (Invite only)
Wednesday, February 7, 2018 / 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
While the past few decades have seen progressive shifts in societal pressures and an uptick in policies that support gender diversity in the world-wide workplace, the participation rate of women in the Middle East's labor force remains relatively low. In an effort to cultivate female talent, especially within senior positions, employers must recognize the unique set of circumstances women face in the MENA region, alongside the ambition of the historically (and globally) disenfranchised gender in navigating traditional ideas and meeting both health and productivity goals of their own.
This session will convene senior female leaders from across the technology, finance, medicine, education, and government sectors in the MENA region to both celebrate the great strides in regional development thus far and discuss strategies for bringing greater balance between career demands alongside health priorities and wellbeing going forward.
