London celebrates the achievements of Arab women with awards
Renowned Arab women will be awarded for their achievements at a prestigious event on 6 December in London in the presence of politicians, ambassadors and social media influencers. The 2018 awards are created by London Arabia Organisation, and have been supported by the Mayor of London.
This year’s event will be held in partnership with Regents University London, the Bicester Village Shopping Collection, Y Asset Management, the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) and London & Partners. Professor Aldwyn Cooper, Advisory Board Chairman and Vice Chancellor and CEO of Regent’s University, stated: “One of the best ways to form bridges between countries is through trade and by celebrating each other’s successes.
This is a key aspects of this event, which seeks to recognise the tremendous contributions being made by women in the Arab world as they take on new leadership roles.” Omar Bdour, the Chief Executive Officer of the London Arabia Organisation said that hosting the Awards in London highlights the close relationship between the UK and Arab world.
“We hope that our event will play a part in helping to end stereotyping of the Arab world and of Arab women; who accomplish so much, despite much of the West’s impression of them.”
