Four Seasons Hotel - Beirut, Lebanon
Women entrepreneurs are becoming more economically empowered in the Arab world. 23% among them have an innovative product or service, as compared to 18% of men according to the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor’s latest report. This is ushering a new era where women entrepreneurs will play an increasingly active role in the economy of the Arab countries.
Against this background, the 7th New Arab Woman Forum will be held under the theme of “Empowerment through Entrepreneurship & Innovation” and will be devoted to discuss the potential of women entrepreneurs, the challenges they face in the Arab countries and the role they can play in innovation and fostering economic growth and employment.
The forum will also include parallel workshops.
NAWF is organized by Al Iktissad Wal Aamal Group and Al Hasnaa Magazine. For the seventh year, NAWF will bring together a distinguished group of speakers and participants from both genders from the Arab world and internationally, including ministers and senior public officials, business leaders, social entrepreneurs, experts, journalists, NGO heads and many other personalities.
