“One of Not Many Mentorship Program is an illustration of the dedication of Emirati women towards the development of their country. For a country to see substantial impact in any industry, the UAE has rooted itself in empowering its women through countless approaches – we are firm believers that women are a core pillar of our society. The program is a one of a kind learning opportunity for our students to work closely with brilliant female leaders in the UAE. I’m certain that this experience will be an extraordinary one for them, as they will get to learn directly from the source and they will be able at the end of the program to be more empowered to make decisions, identify goals and establish a sense of direction for their own careers and ambitions.” – Her Excellency Noura bint Mohammed Al Kaabi, Minister of Culture and Youth, President of Zayed University.
