Skyline Conducted Women of Substance: A Panel Discussion on Women Empowerment
Skyline Conducted Women of Substance: A Panel Discussion on Women Empowerment

Dubai, UAE, December 5, 2017:  Skyline University College in cooperation with DANUBE Group has organized Woman of Substance: A Panel Discussion on Women Empowerment on November 27, 2017, at SUC Campus. The panel discussion was aimed at raising awareness on the obstacles women are experiencing today as well as to encourage them to make their own decisions, stand up for themselves, and start believing in their power to make a change in the society. SUC Assistant Professor Dr. Kakul Agha briefly introduced the topic to the audience before the panel discussion and acted as the panel moderator of the event.  The distinguished panelists were three of the most inspiring women in the UAE today namely: Dr. Zulekha Daud, Managing Director of Zulekha Hospitals; Dr. Sana Sajan of DANUBE Group’s Danube Welfare Center (DWC); and Ms. Hessa Taher of Sharjah Entrepreneurship Centre (Sheraa). 

Defining women empowerment, Dr. Zulekha Daud answered, “Women empowerment is within yourself. You have to start with yourself. You have to understand what you want to do. You have to make a decision against your parents. It is not going against your parents but putting yourself forward. We have to see and do what we want and how we do it is up to us.” While Dr. Sana Sajan emphasized being assertive in her definition of the topic, “Women empowerment is being able to choose what you want to do and doing it in a rightful manner. That is being assertive. Assertiveness is when you take your own right and at the same time you don’t hurt the other person’s right.” 

Dr. Kakul also brought up the obstacles that women are encountering today and Dr. Sajan advised students to set aside the barriers that hinder them to be empowered and start standing up for themselves. 

Finally, Ms. Tehra motivated the students with her ending message saying, “Don’t waste time. After a while you will feel like you have wasted so much time and you haven’t accomplished much. So don’t waste time. If you feel like you’re not empowered, empower yourself now. If you want to start something, do it now. Don’t wait.”

Woman of Substance is an annual event of SUC to provide a platform for women to address the challenges they are facing and a venue to gain knowledge from empowered women in the UAE today.
