The conference, scheduled to take place on Thursday, 15th June 2023 at V Hotel, Al Habtoor City in Dubai, UAE, is expected to attract some 150 industry professionals from the communications, tech and media industries. It serves as an extension to Communicate’s mission to empower women in their personal and professional walks of life while effectively addressing the vivid gender gap and existing biases against women in the workplace.
Despite significant progress in efforts to empower women in the workplace, we’re still in a place more and more women across the globe are quitting and switching their jobs, when they’re not getting what they ask for from an organization. According to McKinsey & Company, women leaders are just as ambitious as men but are facing headwinds that hinder their professional and personal growth. In circumstances like these, organizations are at risk of losing and even attracting fresh women talent, and, women, continue to be depreciated of their rights in the workplace.
Addressing these crises and its effect on women, Communicate is hosting the Women To Watch Conference. Under the theme of ‘Breaking through gender stereotypes to drive creative change,’ the half-day event will take place on 15th June 2023 at the V Hotel in Al Habtoor City, Dubai, UAE. It invites individuals from all walks of life who share a passion for exploring how organizational culture can embrace gender equality to fuel innovation and foster growth to participate in the audience. With a diverse line-up of over 30 industry experts who have been instrumental in paving the way for change, attendees will have the opportunity to share their own valuable insights and forge meaningful connections with the audience.
