SHARJAH: Sharjah’s NAMA Women Advancement Establishment, NAMA, and the London-based international organisation Global Thinkers Forum, GTF, have launched the Athena MENA Mentoring Programme 2018 to help women in the region to develop new skills and expertise, and to enhance and expand their professional and personal prospects.

The new partnership with a leading worldwide organisation reflects NAMA’s ever-increasing efforts to empower 100 women from the MENA region by 2020, and equip them with leadership skills that help them chart their own future path. The selected candidates are provided with a personalised development opportunity to address individual learning needs over a period of eight months.

The Athena MENA Mentoring Programme 2018 aims to develop talents, abilities and business acumen of 10-15 women above the age of 22, and provide them with support and networking opportunities and give them a deeper insight into modern business practices.

The programme offers guidance, mentorship, and professional advice for mentees by deepening their understanding of international markets and helping them with confidence-building. Adopting scientific and practical strategies and clear action plans for the inclusion of women in local, regional and global economies, the programme encourages women to launch and set up their own enterprises, a forward-thinking scheme that leads to creating a generation of active women leaders.
