Update on @WomenEd_UAE inspired events and Dubai women in leadership and education events and activity

1-woman-leader-with-group-of-menYesterday afternoon I was really happy to be able to deliver a one hour seminar at Middlesex University Dubai on the topic of  global and local gender issues. There was a great turn out and some enthusiastic responses, comments and contributory input from the audience along the way and at the end. I was able to give a quick plug for our next event (details below for Sunday 22nd October), when UK based Hannah Wilson will come to speak on the topic of Values Based Education, Women in Leaderhip and WomenEd (also kicking off our @WomenEd_UAE interest group).

I’ve listed some further groups and projects of interest below that bring together the women in leadership agenda in the Dubai region, where possible with a focus on education. Also some links of relevance that I highlighted in my seminar yesterday. Hope to see you at an event soon!
