Qatar Chamber (QC) Board Member Ibtihaj al Alhmadani underscored the importance of Doha Women Forum, which will be organised in cooperation with Qatar Chamber and ICC Qatar in Doha on September 29.
“QC and ICC Qatar spared no effort in supporting initiatives for empowering woman in the society and strongly supports home-based businesses which are owned by Qatari women”, she said in a press conference to announce the third edition of the forum.
She also said “The Chamber has stimulated productive families by providing them free spaces in ‘Made in Qatar’ exhibition and other exhibitions the Chamber participates in”
To support businesswomen, ICC Qatar has established the “National Home-based Businesses Programme” and promoted businesswomen’s projects at the World Chamber Congress held recently in Brazil, Alhmadani said.
The QC official stressed the keenness of providing sponsorship to the forum to highlight successes made by Qatari woman, noting that it provides a good opportunity for experience exchange and information between participants.
The forum offers a unique platform for examining issues and challenges facing woman everywhere and pursuing efforts aiming at enhancing the role of Qatari woman and businessmen in the society and their contribution in the development process.
The Doha Women Forum will be held at The Westin Doha Hotel and Spa on September 29. The event will consist of inspiring talks, group discussions and workshops, as well as an interactive session to facilitate networking.
