Yesterday 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’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!
