With grant funding support from the National Research Foundation, the University of Wollongong in Dubai is proud to have teamed up with Dubai Business Woman Council (DBWC) to understand more about the role of women in the UAE workplace and the factors associated with women attaining, and succeeding in, leadership positions. It is hoped that the research will contribute to public policy initiatives aimed to heighten career leadership development opportunities among women in the UAE.Learn more about the project here.
This inagural Women and Leadership Seminar is part of a monthly program of events which is designed to encourage women from across the UAE to contribute in the dialogues and debates surrounding gender issues in the workplace. The seminar will provide an opportunity for working women to both learn from Hazel Nyandoro's story and share their own stories, and to join the conversation about legislative implications.
Drawing on her own experiences, Hazel will be talking about the key enablers, challenges and learnings that helped her to make the leap from corporate leadership to entrepreneurship.
The session will last for an hour and a half. Refreshments will be served.
