A Promise of a Generation (POAG) initiative, e7 – بنات الإمارات Daughters of the Emirates— is a year-long program that brings together young women ages 18-25 to develop and implement team projects that benefit their communities. Every year, 35 participants –3 Emiratis and 2 longtime residents from each emirate– are inspired by community leaders, trained in design thinking, connected to mentors and supported with ongoing learning opportunities.
The program kicks off with the e7 Girls Summit in April, a 3-day network and development experience focused on Inspiration, Training, Connection &Commitment. The e7 Girls Summit is the catalyst that facilitates team-driven initiatives to benefit the community; fulfilling the UAE leaders’ vision of encouraging women to contribute to society.
e7 participants are matched with mentors who support them through their journey. Our long-term vision is to grow e7 to a sisterhood of 3000+ women who mentor, support, and learn from each other by 2022. e7 banat are smart, thoughtful, caring young women who are passionate about having a positive impact on our community.
