On Wednesday, 12 June 2019, the Pearl Initiative and NAMA Women Advancement Establishment held the first stakeholder meeting under the Diversity in Business Leadership programme. 

The stakeholder meeting convened a group of thought leaders and business professionals in an informal setting to collectively discuss the experiences of women in the workplace in the UAE. This meeting witnessed discussions on the experiences of working women across multiple sectors, as well as potential solutions that could be implemented by businesses to support women and their careers.

This stakeholder meeting was moderated by Yasmine Omari, Executive Director, Pearl Initiative.
The outcomes of this meeting will be translated into qualitative data for our upcoming Diversity in Business Leadership report, to be published in December 2019.
