  • Her Excellency, Sheikha Lubna bint Khalid Al Qasimi delivers special presentation on the role of women in the nuclear industry during the final day of the International Ministerial Conference on Nuclear Power in the 21st Century in Abu Dhabi, UAE

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates – 1 November 2017:  The United Arab Emirates (UAE) Peaceful Nuclear Energy Program was praised for its high level of female participation, as well as its position as one of the most diverse, multinational and multicultural nuclear programs in the world during a special presentation on the vital role of women in the nuclear industry.

The special presentation was given by Her Excellency, Sheikha Lubna bint Khalid Al Qasimi, Vice Chairwoman, Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation Board of Directors, and President of Zayed University, on the final day of the International Ministerial Conference on Nuclear Power in the 21st Century, which took place in Abu Dhabi in the UAE.

“Here in the UAE, we strongly believe in the equality of men and women, both in society and in professional development,” said H.E. Sheikha Lubna during the presentation. “From the very beginning of the UAE Peaceful Nuclear Energy Program, we emphasized strongly the need to bring more women into the nuclear industry and into what is generally considered a male-dominated sector around the world.”

“At Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation and its subsidiaries, I am proud to see that our efforts to inspire women to join this industry of the future has produced positive results. Today, 23% of professionals working at ENEC are women. At the Barakah nuclear energy plant, approximately 10% of employees are female. This is a significant achievement and we will continue to support all women who want to join the sector,” said H.E. Sheikha Lubna.

“The UAE Peaceful Nuclear Energy Program is one of the most diverse and perhaps the most multinational and multicultural nuclear program in the world, with over 40 nationalities involved. We celebrate this diversity and continue to promote understanding, diversity and acceptance,” concluded H.E. Sheikha Lubna.
Following the presentation, H.E. Sheikha Lubna participated in a ‘Youth Circle,' organized in parallel to the conference under the theme of “Youth, The Future of Nuclear Power.” Participants discussed youth inspiration and motivation, knowledge management and sustainability, research and development opportunities, and innovation in the nuclear field.

During the Circle, H.E. Sheikha Lubna stressed the crucial role of young people in ensuring the sustainability of growth and development in various sectors, especially the peaceful nuclear energy sector. She went on to highlight her own experiences as a young woman and how important it is for young people to be engaged in the workplace and fully pursue their career ambitions.

For his part, His Excellency Ambassador Hamad Alkaabi, UAE Permanent Representative to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and President of the Conference, highlighted the importance of developing human capital and nurturing young professionals in order to ensure the sustainability of peaceful nuclear energy. He went on to note that this type of skills development requires programs and initiatives on both the national and international level, with organizations around the world collaborating to ensure the exchange of best practices.

The Youth Circle is an initiative governed by the Emirates Youth Council and Launched by H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai. The initiatives aims to inspire youth-centric dialogue across a variety of areas for sustainable engagement with Emirati youth to shape innovative solutions for global challenges.

The International Ministerial Conference on Nuclear Power in the 21st Century has gathered global nuclear energy experts and leaders to assess the latest trends in the industry and propose new strategies to tackle energy challenges faced across the globe. More than 700 delegates from the 68 countries attended the conference.
