Women in the Middle East today are half the population, but only a fraction of the workforce. Meet Hana, an ambitious woman from Dubai. Erin Burnett reports.
We are so proud of you Hana and every Emirati woman who have took the path of success and ambition to pursue her dream till she fulfills or grab whatever life has to offer… and here i would like to quote Muna AlGurg
His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has been at the forefront of empowerment by encouraging the youth, and particularly women, to take advantage of the many options available to them in education. In terms of university education, the figure for female university enrolment is far greater than that of their male counterparts. Arab women today fully realise the importance of their roles in society and the economy. With education increasingly available for women in all Arab countries, they have gained independence and status and entered the professional and business spheres. I see this as a striking example of how inspired leadership can affect the shape and progress of a population’s workforce.
