Conference on Changing Mindsets and the Long-Term Case for Diversity @ Dusit Thani Hotel

When December 12, 2021 @ 9:30 am - December 12, 2021 4:30 pm
Details

The UAE’s Vision 2021 calls for the UAE to become one of the top 25 countries globally enabling more women participation in society and economy.  Substantial research highlights the importance of gender diversity leading to more innovative thinking, productivity, profitability, sustainability and a greater impact on actual and perceived returns.  Closing the gender gap, it is mentioned, would add $28 trillion to the value of the global economy by 2025. 

In tackling gender equality for listed companies, Germany introduced a gender quota for supervisory boards in 2016. Listed companies have to achieve a 30% quota of women in board positions. In addition, gender research is currently a very important aspect for all research proposals from the academic community".

Still women remain significantly underrepresented in the halls of corporate decision-making, with fewer women than men sitting in decision-making positions. Forward-thinking companies and organizations should be looking for ways to empower more women at work.  Companies and organizations need a comprehensive plan for supporting and advancing women. 

The purpose of this Genderbridges Dialogue is to bring together practitioners and academics to explore possible barriers and solutions to promote gender equality. Our purpose is to bring out common themes across Germany and the UAE that have proven to lead to change in gender diversity and equality.
