(MENAFN Press) Recognising the increasingly important role of UAE National women in the country's developmental march, Careers UAE 2014 offered an ideal platform to empower working women with a key note session featuring renowned UAE national motivational speaker Hala Kazim as well as a workshop on initiatives for women organized by Dubai Women Establishment (DWE).
Organised under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, Careers UAE 2014 has attracted throngs of young UAE Nationals, particularly women, looking to build their career as the fair brought together a record number of companies from both the private and public sectors. The fair, which is in its 14th edition this year, concludes tomorrow, 24 April.
Addressing the key note session titled 'Empowering the Next Generation of UAE Leaders' Hala called upon the women of the country to relentlessly pursue their dream career goals.
"The more I meet and engage with UAE National women, the more I am impressed with their abilities and passions. I therefore urge them to work towards their dream career without giving in to failures and disappointments," Hala said.
Hala Kazim recently won the Mohammed Bin Rashid Award for Young Business Leaders for being the first UAE National and Arab to design a programme for women, 'Journey Through Change'.
"The UAE market offers a wide range of opportunities for talented women. However, when it comes to developing a career, there are two things women should keep in mind. Firstly, you should have a clear idea about what exactly you want. Secondly, you need to be aware that career development is not about trying and giving up. On the contrary, it is all about sheer determination. Never give up if you don't get your dream job “ keep trying and go for it," Hala said.


.
Pointing out that Careers UAE has always played a major role in the empowerment of UAE National women, Hala said, "With a number of major players from the government and private sectors taking part in the fair, Careers UAE is an ideal platform for talented local women to find a variety of opportunities across different industries."
The women's empowerment goal of Careers UAE has received further boost with the participation of Dubai Women Establishment (DWE) which is organising a workshop on the important initiatives and projects it is offering to UAE National women.
DWE helps UAE National women to balance their careers and family life by advocating appropriate gender equality policies and initiatives, providing life-long opportunities for training and work and promoting greater participation of women in economic and political domains.
With the UAE constitution guaranteeing women equal access as men to education, healthcare and social welfare, women have become active participants in all spheres of activity in the country. According to the Ministry of Interior statistics, women make up as much as 66 per cent of government workers in the UAE, with a third of them holding senior positions.
The UAE is leading the region in women's empowerment, and according to the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, over 70 per cent of university graduates are women. Women are also active participants in the political sphere through representation in the Federal National Council (FNC), local consultative councils, as well as their participation in the formation and shaping of public policy. Furthermore, the Global Gender Gap Report 2013 of the World Economic Forum has ranked the UAE first in the GCC region in terms of gender equality and highlighted the country's leading position in the MENA region with the narrowest gender gap.
