The 2018 UAE Female Leaders Outlook, which we believe is the first survey of its kind in the Emirates. The report is based on a number of interviews with senior female management across a comprehensive range of sectors of the UAE economy. It represents the voice of female leaders who understand the times we live in, are business-savvy and instinctively develop themselves and their skills to enhance their position in the workplace of the future. Put simply, we believe our research shows that female leaders are prepared for the current technological revolution, and the digital age holds the potential to be the women’s era.
