What Others Say

“The fact that women continue to trail men in formal labour force participation, access to credit, entrepreneurship rates, and in the income they generate is not only not fair, it is also not smart economics”

-Mr Robert Zoellick, President The World Bank

AIWF Conference, Washington DC, USA , June 2008

AIWF 15th Anniversary Reception and Gala Concert at Kensington Palace

Gala Reception

On 26 April 2016, the very successful AIWF 15th Anniversary Reception and Gala Concert was held at Kensington Palace in London, to commemorate the founding of The Arab International Women’s Forum in 2001.

This important occasion highlighted the role of the AIWF leadership in the Middle East and internationally over the last fifteen years. The event has given AIWF a great opportunity to celebrate the many achievements and milestones and look forward with great optimism towards the next fifteen years and beyond, as AIWF moves forward with its mission to advance the call for women and youth to be real drivers of change in the Arab region.

Under the theme Building Bridges through Culture, the Gala Concert was held in proud collaboration with the Peace and Prosperity Trust, in the presence of HRH The Duke of Gloucester Patron of The Peace & Prosperity Trust and HRH Duchess of Gloucester.

AIWF was especially proud that the occasion of AIWF’s 15th Anniversary offered a platform for the young and gifted artists of the Peace & Prosperity Trust, Arab, British and international to showcase their superb talent. AIWF was indeed most appreciative of their efforts and dedication in preparing a unique and exquisite performance which was enjoyed by all and which contributed to the success of this special occasion.

The Gala Concert and reception was very well attended by 140 guests, including Founder and Current AIWF Board Members, Global Partners, Government and Diplomatic guests, leading members of the business community and heads of leading institutions, senior representatives of the media as well as leading figures from the Arab, European and International community who have supported AIWF and contributed to the AIWF mission and work for the last 15 years.

A comprehensive event report with photos will be featured in the June edition of the AIWF Newsletter.
