The session touched base on inclusion and gender diversity in the workplace and the importance of finding and creating opportunities, as well as mentorship and coaching, to aid the younger generation of women to follow their passion and seek non-traditional female careers.

The Women Power Summit 2019 presented powerful female leaders in different fields and industries from the Kingdom of Bahrain and the region. Representatives had the opportunity to interact with the attendees and share their different personal stories and experiences. The focus and theme of this year’s summit was ‘Women in Leadership: Inspiring Action and Leading Change’ and the speakers shared their thoughts and opinions on working together, communicating and building stronger relationships within teams in the workplace environment.
