On the tour across the United Arab Emirates, the delegation of over 70 members joined forces with the Dubai Business Women Council to discuss their shared aims and ambitions. The organisation supporting Dubai’s business and professional women aims to assist the female professionals to achieve success on both national and international fronts, to promote tolerance and cultural understanding and to help fight the stereotypes across the Arab world. 

The DBWC members have the advantages of gaining access to extensive and diverse networking platforms, professional growth through workshops delivered by industry experts and many other possibilities to enhance the career options.
