SHARJAH: NAMA Women Advancement Establishment has announced that the first edition of the Women Economic Empowerment Global Summit (WEEGS) will include two interactive sessions on entrepreneurship and innovation for women, with the activities hosting an array of established female entrepreneurs providing tips on how to achieve success.

Taking place December 4th and 5th at Expo Centre Sharjah, WEEGS, which is being held in conjunction with UN Women, will provide an opportunity for women entrepreneurs and business owners to gain invaluable insights into the world of business and to learn from others’ experiences, giving them the inspiration to turn their ideas into profitable ventures.

“The Women Economic Empowerment Global Summit will include a range of important topics related to efforts aiming to empower business women and female entrepreneurs in different economic sectors and encourage a new generation of women entrepreneurs who have not found the right opportunity yet to turn their business ideas into rewarding enterprises that both benefit them and contribute to the national economy,” said Reem BinKaram, Director of NAMA.

“The format of the sessions is such that they allow audiences to talk spontaneously to and interact directly with the entrepreneurs on stage, making the sessions more engaging for audiences. Entry to these sessions is free for everyone to allow the largest number of entrepreneurs and business owners to attend,” BinKaram continued.

The inaugural edition of WEEGS will comprise seven panel discussions featuring an elite group of experts from the UAE and the international business community who will highlight the best ways to empower women economically and to enhance their participation in sustainable development as effective contributors and key partners.

The summit will also include six sector-specific sessions highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of women empowerment, with the sessions covering 16 sectors; notably energy, sustainability, city planning, transport and logistics, health and media.
