The “Gender Hub” marks a significant contribution to gender, one of the conference’s key focus areas. Delegates will discuss potential pathways in the creation of new legal frameworks regarding gender equality in the workplace, and the eradication of biased practices targeted at women, both crucial elements in ending gender-based discrimination that is prevalent in many countries around the world.
The UAE has become a global example of gender equality. At present, 23,000 Emirati businesswomen run projects worth over AED50 billion and occupy 15 percent of the positions on the boards of chambers of commerce and industry nationwide.
The United Nations Industrial Development Organization, UNIDO, and the UAE Ministry of Energy and Industry, today announced that Strata Manufacturing, the advanced composite aero-structures manufacturing company wholly owned by Mubadala Investment Company PJSC, will sponsor the “Gender Hub”.
Strata strongly believes in the power of talent, irrespective of gender, and thus they continue to on board colleagues based on skills and abilities who share passion for manufacturing.
The event will be organised by the UAE at the joint UAE-UNIDO Exhibition during the eighteenth Session of UNIDO’s General Conference, GC, from 3rd to 7th November, 2019, at the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi.
