Staying true to its exquisite Arabian essence, Bab Al Qasr Hotel played host to the ladies of Qiyadiyat, an exclusive leadership and networking group for professional Emirati women, for an introductory afternoon last 13 January, 2018.
The afternoon saw the presence of Qiyadiyat Co-Founders Su-ad Yousif, Bodour Al Tamimi and Laila Al Hassan where they were able to introduce the group and its activities. Qiyadiyat was founded in 2013 as a positive space for Emirati women to network, connect and develop.
“The idea of Qiyadiyat was an organic response to a need that we all felt at different points in our careers. We all wanted and needed a positive space where we could discuss our personal and professional challenges, successes and failures with like-minded people,” explained Su-ad Yousif, Co-Founder of Qiyadiyat.
Among the group’s array of activities is the ‘High Q.’ This is an informative learning session, held in an intimate setting, where Qiyadiyat hosts inspirational speakers from different industries and women are able to share and learn from each other. The group is considering hosting several of its ‘High Qs’ in one of the 17 meeting venues available at Bab Al Qasr Hotel & Residences in the year 2018.
Murshed Al Shamsi, Bab Al Qasr Hotel’s Director of Protocol, “We are more than honoured to show our support for such an innovative group of women who, both together and individually, are instrumental in shaping the future of women in the UAE.”
