Description

AIWF PwC

AIWF will be hosting its 10th Conference of the Young Arab Women Leaders series on 11 December 2017 at the Royal Academy of Engineering in London, in continued partnership with PwC and with the valued partnership of the World Bank.

Young Arab Women Leaders is AIWF’s keystone initiative, launched in 2012 in London together with AIWF Global Partner PwC and followed by successful events in Amman, Beirut and Dubai in 2012, Palestine in 2013, London in 2014, Qatar in 2015, Kuwait in 2016, and Morocco in early 2017. The initiative aims to provide a platform for established and emerging women leaders to support, learn from, and network with mentors and rising stars in political, economic and social leadership roles in the Arab world and internationally.

At every conference held to date, AIWF has welcomed members, guests and delegates from over 40 different countries, including the UK, US, the EU countries and the Arab States. For each conference, AIWF and PwC have joined efforts to deliver a high-impact, one-day programme of sessions in a highly interactive format and in a supportive environment to promote the development of leadership skills and confidence in the next generation of young women leaders.
