New board formed for Abu Dhabi Businesswomen Council

The Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce and Industry has formed a new board for the Abu Dhabi Businesswomen Council (ADBWC).

The initiative was part of efforts to support businesswomen and female entrepreneurs in Abu Dhabi and help them increase their contribution to the emirate’s economic growth.

The new board will have a mandate to help female entrepreneurs refine their skills; introduce them to the applicable laws and policies; and help them learn to leverage local and federal governmental initiatives and incentives, official news agency WAM reported.

Chaired by Asma Al Fahim, the ADBWC board comprises members from the Abu Dhabi Chamber along with businesswomen in the emirate, including Nour Al Tamimi, Dr Khadija Al Ameri, Marwa Al Mansouri, and Sheikha Al Nuwais.

“Over the past fifty years, the UAE has placed women empowerment amongst its top priorities and supported the Emirati woman to be a key partner in building the UAE,” said chairwoman Asma Al Fahim.

“The support of H.H. Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, Chairwoman of the General Women’s Union (GWU), President of the Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood, Supreme Chairwoman of the Family Development Foundation (FDF) and Honorary Chairwoman of the ADBWC, played a huge role in women development in all fields, especially entrepreneurship.”

The ADBWC is keen to increase its communication with businesswomen in Abu Dhabi to keep them updated on the latest economic changes, she added.

The Council will launch new initiatives and programmes to support the business environment and equip female entrepreneurs with all tools, enabling them to leverage business opportunities in local, regional and international markets, the chairwoman said.
