Ooredoo, Qatar’s leading communications company, continues to commit to its vision of encouraging and rewarding female leaders through strategic partnerships, as preparations begin for the sixth annual How Women Work Conference (HWW) which takes place on 20 and 21 May.

HWW is the leading women’s business community group in Qatar, and Ooredoo is an active strategic partner of the organisation. The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Be the Change’ – and the event aims to encourage women with aspirations and ambitions to realise their goals through meeting and exchanging ideas with like-minded people. As the major sponsor for the HWW event, Ooredoo will communicate how women can “Be The Change”, and why they are one of the top employers for women in Qatar.

As well as finical support, Ooredoo’s female leaders, such as Fatima Sultan Al-Kuwari, Director of Communications and Public Relations, and Olympic medallist Liz McColgan, who is a coordinator for the Ooredoo Marathon, will be speaking at the conference. Fatima Sultan Al Kuwari, commented: “Looking at the ongoing support, encouragement and empowerment that Ooredoo provides to females in Qatar, we can confidently say that we are already being the change. I am extremely proud to be part of an organisation that highlights the importance of women within the workplace and look forward to seeing everyone at the event.”

Ooredoo’s sponsorship of How Women Work (HWW) is one of the many ways the company encourages the female population of Qatar to be part of the working community. Ooredoo places a strong focus on female employees and their career opportunities within the company by tailor-making leadership development and accelerated-learning initiatives to actively help women up the corporate ladder. Tickets to the HWW conference are currently on sale through Eventbrite’s website and at The One stores in Villagio, Lagoona and Landmark malls.
