The visiting delegation was received by HE Dr. Raja Al Gurg, President of the Dubai Business Women Council; HE Faiza Al Sayed, Vice-President of the Dubai Business Women Council; the Board members of the Dubai Business Women Council; and Dr. Nada Mourtada-Sabbah, the Secretary General of the University Leadership Council (ULC).

The two sides discussed methods of enhancing cooperation to empower women in the business community. They also focused on ways to instil a sense of entrepreneurship and innovation in women in order for them to excel in their chosen field of expertise.
HE Yannick Glemarec, UN Assistant Secretary-General and Deputy Executive Director for Policy and Programme in UN Women, praised the significant contributions and the achievements of Emirati women, which has made them role models for women empowerment in the region.

Al Gurg added, “The various strategic tracks that HE ASG Dr. Glemarec heads, including technology and innovation, climate change, innovative financing and entrepreneurship of young women leaders, are all particularly germane themes to both the work of the Council and the strategic goals of the UAE.  ”
