The Qatari Business Women Association, in collaboration with Interactive Business Network (IBN), is organising for the third year in a row the Qatar International Businesswomen Forum on 15 & 16 October 2012 at The St. Regis Hotel, Doha.

The political upheavals that have been sweeping the Arab world since the beginning of 2011 will continue to impact the course of economic and social developments in the region for many years to come. One of the key questions is whether this process of change currently underway will boost the political and economic role of women in the region. Specifically, will Arab businesswomen be able to strengthen their leadership and executive positions in this environment of change and uncertainty.

There will be both regional and international participation, which is expected to exceed 800 speakers and delegates from 25 countries including the US, Canada, Australia, the UK, Russia and most Arab countries.

Some of the major topics under discussion will focus on perspectives of the ‘post-revolution’ and the challenges facing businesswomen in the transitional period. It will also cover corporate social responsibility, NGOs and the empowerment of women so far.
