UAE-Japan FCW Forum Convenes in Abu Dhabi

by Madaline Dunn

The 18th UAE-Japan Friendship Committee for Women (FCW) forum was recently held in Abu Dhabi under the theme, ‘A Sustainable Future: Integrating Technology & Diversity’.

According to organisers, the forum focused on women’s role in driving a sustainable energy sector and encouraging aspiring female leaders to pursue energy-related education and careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

The forum also highlighted the importance of cross-sector collaboration, best practices and policies that support women’s empowerment in the energy sector.

At the event, Dr. Maitha Al Shamsi, Minister of State and FCW Chair, said: “With the acceleration of scientific and technological progress, and developments in collaborative areas within the energy sector, sustainability has become a common concern for all countries, whether exporters or consumers.

“Women form an important part of the workforces that oil and gas companies seek to attract. Supporting these women through training, providing advanced technological practices, offering guidance programmes and developing their leadership skills are essential steps toward creating an inclusive work environment that provides equal opportunities for all employees.”

It was shared that the FCW aims to overcome barriers and create a more inclusive and diverse workforce by providing necessary platforms for cooperation and increased knowledge.
