There has been an interest in getting together to share experiences as female professionals working in Dubai and a new network has been created to enhance this experience.
Our first get together will be on Friday 14th June, 12.30 - 14.30. Sarah Mahony, '11 will host at her home and will klet
The first reading that you should prepare for this event is "Lean In", by Sheryl Sandberg (COO of Facebook and Forbes 10th most powerful woman in the world). There is also a Facebook page and website on 'Lean In' if this is of interest.
We look forward to seeing you all there and meeting new people!
Just so we are all on the same page about what this network is (and is not!) a group of us have put together some notes below. Very open of course to changing the format if it doesn't work, let's see how it goes.
To help enable a discussion, the Host will propose some reading for everyone to do before the session.
1) to connect female professionals to discuss key themes impacting their professional life (both in the workplace and at home), and 2) discuss recent business articles/books and/or listen to guest speaker presentations (if available).
Audience: cross-industry female professionals who are keen to grow and network by listening and contributing to lively discussions about career opportunities and overcoming challenges.
Suggested frequency/date: Once every 2 months. Every month a different host that chairs/prepares the discussions (although format is to be very free-flowing).
