Speakers share insights on how female entrepreneurs can address Covid-19 challenges
The webinar was part of Dubai Economy’s monthly ‘Market Dialogue’ series
A webinar to highlight the incentives, services, and benefits that can support all UAE-based businesswomen and entrepreneurs was recently hosted by Dubai Economy and the Dubai Business Women Council (DBWC), said reports on Sunday, June 12.
Dubai Economy has been hosting monthly Market Dialogues to provide an open platform to discuss subjects of interest to the business community, and this webinar was part of it, added the reports.
Titled “Empowering Her: Dubai Economy & Dubai Business Women Council Opens Doors for UAE Women”, the webinar was also reportedly the first joint activity under the strategic partnership signed last April to support DBWC female entrepreneurs and provide them with various opportunities, services and facilities.
Through Empowering Her, DBWC and Dubai Economy specifically sought to explain how female entrepreneurs and businesswomen can improve their competitiveness in the labour market.
Participants in the webinar discussed mechanisms of benefiting from the economic incentives provided by Dubai Economy and its agencies – Dubai SME, Dubai Industries and Exports, and Dubai FDI – to support businesses and entrepreneurs, and particularly to encourage women to engage actively and successfully in business.
The speakers shared their insights on how businesswomen and female entrepreneurs can address the challenges brought by Covid-19 and turn them into opportunities that support their professional aspirations in the labour market.
Mariam Al Afridi introduced participants to the services provided by Dubai Economy and its agencies to encourage more women to enter business.
“The entrepreneurial ecosystem and business environment in Dubai enable women to demonstrate their presence in diverse economic sectors and activities. Dubai Economy focuses on empowering female citizens and residents to become successful entrepreneurs and business leaders, as is evident across our strategies and services,” said Al Afridi.
Also speaking at the webinar, Nadine Halabi lauded the virtual gathering, calling it the first fruit of the strategic partnership signed by DBWC and Dubai Economy to support women in all areas of work, and equip them with the necessary expertise, knowledge and facilities they need to enhance their awareness and ability to benefit from customized incentive packages provided by the Dubai Economy to the council’s members.
