The 4th German-Arab Women's Forum

They represent 50 percent of the population. They represent more than half of all graduates in many Arab countries. They sit in high positions, in governments, parliaments and courts. One thing is clear: The economic cooperation between Germany and the Arab countries must take women into account!
The promotion of the economic and social participation of women in the Arab world and the intensification of exchanges with German decision-makers are more  important than ever  for the EMA. After the great successes in recent years, it is therefore a great pleasure for us to invite you :
The 4th German-Arab Women's Forum
September 25, 2018
European School of Management & Technology (ESMT), Schloßplatz 1, 10178 Berlin
(German-Arabic with simultaneous translation)
This year, the forum will be opened by Dr. Maria Flachsbarth, State Secretary in the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, Caren Marks, State Secretary in the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth (tbc) and H.E. Sheikha Hend Bint Faisal Al Qassemi, owner and publisher of the Velvet Magazine and organizer of the International Dubai Fashion Week, as well as by the President of the EMA, Gabriele Groneberg, Former Member of the German Bundestag.
"The EMA is doing an excellent job, because it opens the space for cooperation between German and Arab women entrepreneurs," sayed Nouzha Skalli, Moroccan Member of Parliament and Former Minister for Family and Women, based on her own experience. In the past years, the pioneer of Moroccan women's politics inspired the audience with her contributions. She has since then become  a permanent and relevant speaker at EMA forums. Together with Sawsan Chebli, the Representative to the Federation of the State of Berlin and Secretary of State for civic engagement and international affairs, she will give one of the keynote speeches this year.
At this year's German-Arab Women's Forum, the EMA gathers around 200 entrepreneurs, decision-makers and multipliers from Germany and the Arab world. In several panels on current and exciting topics, this year's event provides information on German and Arab perspectives on the situation of women in business, society and politics, drawing on the individual careers of the participants.
Thanks to the support of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, participation is free. Experience has shown that this event will be well attended. Members of the EMA and partner associations are given priority. Please note that participation in the forum is only possible upon submission of the completed application form and subsequent our  confirmation of your participation.
