The UAE Chapter of 85 Broads presents the Global Network Forum: What’s Your Destiny?

Join them for this opportunity to network with women from across all sectors and meet leaders of global institutions and companies committed to empowering women. This Forum will be of particular interest to women who are working in, or have a passion for, the Middle East.

Learn how women in the Middle East are blazing their own trails as business leaders, entrepreneurs, philanthropists and parents! Find out what smart, successful and courageous women really think about their careers and lives, and uncover ways to find your own passion, get an even higher return on your intellect, build your network, and define success on your own terms.
