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, a 4-day networking 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.
