EAG celebrate International Women’s Day

Posted 8 March 2018 · Add Comment

Etihad Aviation Group has marked the 2018 International Women’s Day with a week of engaging activities featuring a number of leading women from across the UAE.

The highlight of the activities was a panel discussion with HE Sheikha Lubna Al Qasimi, President of Zayed University, and HE Mrs Rachel Ruto EGH, the Wife of the Deputy President of Kenya William Ruto.

Sheikha Lubna Al Qasimi highlighted the need for women and men to work alongside one another: “At work, you have female and male colleagues and just the same in school. Take it as a partnership, take it as that everybody has a role to play in society and in life. Respect the man as they contribute a lot and support us women.”

Rachel Ruto, also founder of the Joyful Women Organization, said: “I advise every woman to go for their dream. I advise you to be whatever you have desired to be, to be whom you dreamt to be. Just know that you can attain that potential and that nothing should be able to prevent you from getting whatever you want in life.”

Amina Taher, Vice President of Corporate Affairs at Etihad Aviation Group, added: “At Etihad Aviation Group, we are privileged to have many inspiring women working here, and we are delighted to have hosted these activities to spotlight their extraordinary stories, as well as the impressive achievements of women from across the UAE.”
