UAE Embassy in Italy in cooperation with PWA
the Emirati Women’s Day
on August 27, 2021 Friday 12.00 to 13.00 CEST
“EXPO 2020: BEYOND EMPOWERING WOMEN” event is to celebrate the Emirati Women’s Day 2021 under the theme “Women: Ambitions & Inspiration for Next 50 years”.
This event – organized by the UAE Embassy in Italy in cooperation with the Professional Women’s Association (PWA) Rome on the occasion of the Emirati Women’s Day 2021 aims at promoting gender equality by highlighting the inspiring model of Expo 2020 Dubai that beautifully reflects the UAE’s vision to empower women. The 65 per cent of all UAE National hires at Expo 2020 Dubai being women, because when it comes to getting the first World Expo in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia region (MEASA) up and running, it takes a woman to get the job done.
On this occasion the UAE Embassy of Italy specially invite the PWA members to join the exclusive virtual event. This initiative will be an opportunity to confirm, together with the esteemed representatives of Italian institutions, industries, and the female entrepreneurship world, the everlasting strong bond we have with them to strengthen the mutually beneficial cooperation and accelerate the gender equality process that is at the center of the ongoing sustainable recovery, positioning the UAE and Italy as global hubs for innovation to face the current and future challenges, as exemplified by Expo 2020 Dubai – one of the biggest global community events ever staged, against the backdrop of a pandemic that has shaken the world – and Italy’s G20 Presidency which focuses on defining the policies needed to ensure the relaunch of sustainable and inclusive growth, nationally and globally. – H.E. Omar Obaid Al-Shamsi, the Ambassador of the UAE in Italy.
