At a virtual signing ceremony, executives from the two organizations elaborated on the scope and goals of their co-operation as well as their shared interest in championing sustainability empowerment for women and young people in the MENA Region.

Through partnerships with organisations like WiSER, AIWF hopes to contribute to the creation of a dynamic, progressive environment in the Arab world in which women are empowered as champions of change, to action positive, gender-neutral developments in their industries, challenge stereotypes of the Arab world abroad, and encourage greater participation by women in sustainability innovation”.

Dr Lamya Fawwaz, Executive Director of Brand and Strategic Initiatives, Masdar and WiSER Program Director, said: “By working with the Arab International Women's Forum, we can give young women greater access to professional development opportunities across the sustainability industry, promote female entrepreneurship, and empower them to address global sustainability challenges head on.”

During the signing ceremony, AIWF and WiSER announced that their first collaborative virtual event will take place next week, on Wednesday, March 31, with a panel discussion on women's entrepreneurship in the green economy, focusing on new opportunities for talented, driven and tech-savvy young Arabs in MENA green growth.
