Dubai, UAE – Saudi Arabian racing idol and women empowerment icon Reema Juffali who recently made headlines when she was announced as the Race Ambassador by organisers of the Formula One Saudi Grand Prix, will share her incredible journey and the road ahead for women’s participation in sports in Arab nations during a special session at the ABLF Talks, the monthly leadership series being held at the Dubai Cares Pavilion at the Expo 2020 Dubai.
The conclave, held as part of the 15th edition of the ABLF Series, will be organised on December 14 under the patronage of Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak al Nahayan, Cabinet Member and Minister of Tolerance and Co-existence, UAE, and in association with the UAE Ministry of Economy and Dubai Cares, a UAE-based global philanthropic organisation.
Aside from Reema’s inspiring session, a focus on creating a tech-driven society where opportunities are open to all and crises are jointly tackled will dominate discussions at the ABLF Talks. The role of the pandemic as a catalyst for a tech-led future will be the topic of the panel discussion headlined by tech entrepreneurs Melda Akin, founder & CEO of D14.AI, and Noor Alnahhas, CEO & co-founder of Nybl who will shed light on their experiences of leading their respective organisations through a period of volatility while sharing insights on AI’s potential for economic growth.
The highlight of the conclave will be an exclusive chat with humanitarian stalwart Giuseppe Saba, CEO, International Humanitarian City, UAE, as he shares insights on how to achieve inclusive growth and wider participation for a sustainable future.
The leadership series that serves as an influential platform for leaders to confer on immediate challenges and propose innovative solutions to the burning socio-economic issues facing the world, is supported by a prestigious line-up of industry heavyweights including the India-based Aditya Birla Group, a $45bn conglomerate, Zand, the first digital bank in the world to provide retail and corporate banking, UAE’s DP World and Etisalat, the world’s fastest mobile network.
As always, the event will be streamed virtually to an audience of 30,000 through the ABLF City, the cutting-edge virtual platform, while the in-person sessions will have a well curated audience comprising top industry leaders from the GCC and beyond.
