Young Arab Women Leaders: The Voice of the Future

Under the title “Young Arab Women Leaders: The Voice of the Future,” the Arab International Women’s Forum (AIWF), organized a one-day conference on September 20, 2012 addressing the importance of empowering Arab women, and bridging the gender gap in the Arab world.

The event was held at LAU Beirut in partnership with the university’s Institute for Women’s Studies in the Arab World (IWSAW) and PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC). It provided a platform for young women leaders to discuss the role of gender in shaping the political, economic, and social opportunities available to women shedding the light on the demographic and communal transitions that helped to narrow the gender gap in the region.
