Well over a decade ago I had an audience with HRH Sheikha Fatima bin-Mubarak (Presidents No 1 wife) at her Palace in Abu Dhabi. Myself and the other women present were each presented with a gold coin. We were a sisterhood of women from all ethnic backgrounds, faiths, and social standing. But together we were united in our purpose of making a difference to the lives and wellbeing of others.
I looked at the golden coin glinting in the palace lights and wondered “what if there was a golden coin for women? Collectively we could make the impossible happen”
After the audience Sheikha Fatima gave a media call for Muslim women to join the nursing profession and that was the start of the journey of empowerment for women in UAE. Sheika Fatima bin Muburak has now been awarded “Mother of the Nation” in recognition of her contribution to women’s empowerment. Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak said, “Women are our main priority in building the nation”
Today the dream of empowerment for women in UAE is becoming a reality.
And for me, in the intervening years, I have promoted leadership, diversity and equality and now … at last … the dream of a Women’s coin to support women’s’ empowerment and education has also become a reality.
