KSA: Women Encouraged to Grow From Within

Click here: Arab News – Women Encouraged to Grow From Within

The conference, workshops and exhibition on “The Art of Leadership and Professional Public Relations,” concluded Wednesday at the Sultan ibn Abdul Aziz Science and Technology Center (Scitech). The three-day event was held under the sponsorship of the GCC Chambers of Commerce and Industry, and the Ministry of Education. Speakers included noted figures, both men and women, from Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar and Kuwait.

…At the event, the workshops and conference aimed at enabling women to explore new skills and grow their inner self. The organizers also hoped that the conference would provide a means for women professionals to network with each other on issues of importance to them.

“Unfortunately, after completion of university, many Saudi women find that they are isolated at home or in the workplace,” observed Al-Shabban. “Where can they go to meet other women who want to grow in creative, empowering ways?” Many of the women at the conference, especially on the opening day, were women who hold positions of responsibility within Saudi society.
