ABU DHABI, 9th March, 2022 (WAM) — The 30/50 Summit, hosted in Abu Dhabi to celebrate the achievements of trailblazing women from around the world, concluded today with a Service Day special event to engage and empower the next generation of female Emirati leaders and achievers.

Held at Zayed University, the event followed three days of summit talks, panel sessions and networking events that drew high-achieving speakers and attendees from the UAE, the region and the world, and included political advisors, investors, entrepreneurs and media personalities.

Chaired by Noura Al Kaabi, President of Zayed University, Minister of Youth and Culture, Service Day offered students the opportunity to engage with a selection of the summit’s guest speakers, as well as the Forbes community.

Pioneering women from various sectors shared knowledge and provided advice and mentorship to inspire young Emirati women to strive for greater achievements in the future.

Noura Al Kaabi, said, “I am delighted to host the Service Day of the 30/50 Summit at Zayed University, which has played an integral role in educating so many young Emirati women since it was inaugurated almost 25 years ago.

“Today’s Service Day brings together outstanding women from around the world to come together with the intent of learning from one another, celebrating our diversity, and building on our connectivity, which will inevitably lead to powerful ideas that will shape a better future.

“The role of women in the UAE has grown from strength to strength, with the growth of the nation. Like so much that is prosperous about our nation, it was the vision of our Founding Father, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, who instilled in us the belief in crucial the contribution of women to the nation.

This is echoed and reinforced by the H.H. Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, Chairwoman of the General Women’s Union (GWU), President of the Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood, and Supreme Chairwoman of the Family Development Foundation (FDF), who has been a driving force in giving women a voice in every aspect of our nation’s development, and has paved the way for many of us and the generations to come.”

Moira Forbes, Executive Vice President, Forbes Media and Publisher, ForbesWomen, said, “We are delighted with the success of the first-ever 30/50 Summit in Abu Dhabi, which has brought together visionary women and leaders from around the world. The event celebrates on a global stage the wide-ranging achievements of powerful women while helping to mentor and inspire the next generation.”

The 30/50 Summit will take place in Abu Dhabi annually until 2024.
