Leading the Scandinavian Delegation to Dubai’s Global Women’s Forum
We were honoured to have led the Nordic delegation to the Global Women’s Forum in Dubai, which took place 23- 24 February 2016.
Founded in 2005, the Global Women’s Forum for the Economy & Society has been the world’s leading platform featuring women’s views and voices on major social and economic issues. Since 2007 the Forum has hosted delegations of remarkable women and men from China, India, the Middle East, the Nordic countries, Brazil, Africa, Russia, Mexico and Singapore.
In 2016 the Global Women’s Forum Dubai honoured Scandinavia, as a region that has become a global role model for removing gender-based disparities in healthcare, education, politics and business. Before the official start of the two-day forum, members of the Scandinavian Delegation were invited to participate in an exclusive pre-program of activities in Dubai on 22nd February, with meetings with government representatives and international VIPs as well as cultural activities in Dubai.
The 2016 event featured prominent speakers such as:
H.M. Queen Rania Al-Abdullah of the of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan;
Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund;
H.H. Sheikh Abdullah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, UAE Minister of Foreign Affairs
Margrethe Vestager, European Commissioner for Competition
