DWE Programs

The program’s first edition concluded with the graduation of 14 prominent Emirati leaders from the public and private sectors, while 16 leaders graduated from the second edition in 2018.

DWE collaborated with Hawkamah, the Institute for Corporate Governance, to increase the participation of female leaders and business women amongst boards of directors in the region.

The programs included topics such as leadership and instigating change; female leaders in the private sector; strategic planning; leadership skills; communication between various cultural segments; and principles of corporate governance.

The Women Leadership Exchange Program included executive programs, theoretical courses, practical projects, specialized case studies, workshops, training sessions and programs for elite leaders to exchange knowledge and experiences, as well as cultural and touristic tours of both the United Arab Emirates and the Kingdom of Sweden.

DWE developed the program to enhance the skills of Emirati women and introduce key competencies designed to match the needs and strategic priorities of the UAE.

The gathering includes a series of quarterly events with the participation of a number of UAE, regional and international leaders.
