Theme for Global Women’s Forum Dubai 2016


Building on the theme Let’s Innovate!, Global Women’s Forum Dubai is a can’t-miss opportunity to speak up, speak out and connect with business leaders and trailblazers from around the world. This historic gathering – the premiere Women’s Forum Event in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region – is being organized by the Dubai Women Establishment and the Women’s Forum for the Economy & Society, and will feature interactive sessions and workshops as well as a gala dinner. Discussions will move beyond the usual expectations for and reservations about technology to address the sustainable role of women as well as the role tradition can play in innovation.

The programme draws upon five agenda streams, each an opportunity to showcase cross-sector innovation and women’s achievement. These streams – Achieving, Creating, Giving, Energizing and Sustaining – are echoed in every session during Global Women’s Forum Dubai, where you will meet and be inspired by:

  • Women whose achievements contribute to lasting progress
  • Women who bring their creativity into their work and their lives
  • Women who give back to their communities and beyond
  • Women who pave the way for future generations with their work on energy and sustainability
