McKinsey & Company has identified that companies in the top quartile for gender diversity are 21% more likely to experience above-average profitability than its fourth quartile competitors[1]. The findings are a strong indication that when you increase gender diversity in an organisation, you are making positive progress towards enhanced decisions, better performance, and higher corporate growth.

In the Middle East, these facts have not gone unnoticed and the role of women in workplaces (in both the public and private sectors) is evolving. For instance, roughly one third of start-ups in the UAE today are run by women[2], and nine of the members of the UAE President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan’s Cabinet (or the Council of Ministers) are women[3].

As there is a commercial need for diversity, there is equally an evident desire for change. This change requires a number of actions, not least around the development of our future female leaders. Operating in a traditionally male orientated culture requires targeted development to break the boundaries that have inhibited women’s career ambitions.

This highly interactive workshop has been developed to focus on the qualities regarded as critical for successful female leaders (particularly those working in the GCC), to support them not only as successful leaders but also as role models for the next generation of leaders in the region.
