The Dubai Mall is recognizing International Women’s Month with celebrations shaped to inspire and empower women by raising a toast to their their achievements and contributions.
Running until March 31st, the festivities under the ‘International Women’s Month at the Dubai Mall’, feature inspiring women including Nayla Al Khaja, the UAE’s first female director who will discuss her challenges as a pioneering female filmmaker; Dr. Reem El Mutwalli, a cultural educator and published scholar, and Stephanie Roberts, an author of a children’s book Thiago’s Shell, who will talk about ‘Finding Inspiration as a Mother’. The sessions will take place at a public café in The Dubai Mall where women from the community can also join in on the relevant discussions of juggling work-life balance, gender balance and inclusion.
Moreover, The Dubai Mall has partnered with DIDI to award a promising student with a full four-year scholarship for Fall 2018 intake. The scholarship has been created to empower women in design and innovation, and motivate young talent to change the face of design in the region.
The visitors to The Dubai Mall will be able to discover some of the region’s most inspiring women through an exhibition titled ‘Pillars of Success’, reflecting some of the Arab Women Awards winners over the last decade. The larger-than-life exhibition will adorn the mall’s pillar, profiling almost 90 Arab women who have made significant achievements in their respective fields.
The Souk Atrium will be a hub for art, where women will be seen working together to create a dynamic, collaborative place. In the centre of it all, will be a live calligraphy art showcase by Najes Noureddin, a very talented Arabic calligraphy artist whose work has been recognized internationally. Live singers and poetry reading will further activate this area.
As part of this campaign, there will also be a photo gallery located between Grand Atrium and Bloomingdale’s on the Ground Floor, which will recognise CEO Magazine’s most influential Arab women in the world. And lastly, celebrating Mother’s Day, all our hard-working mums and their families can pamper and rejuvenate themselves with make-up, touch-up and nail makeovers courtesy of Paris Gallery.
Celebrate International Women’s Month at The Dubai Mall and share your inspiring stories of women empowerment.
