Nayla Al Khaja shares inspiring insight during International Women's Month

To recognize the achievement of women in the region, ITP Media Group has joined hands with The Dubai Mall, hosting a three-week celebration for International Women’s Month. To inspire ambitious women in the region, the UAE’s first female director, Nayla Al Khaja, addressed a female audience, discussing her challenges as a pioneering filmmaker. The session took place at a public café in The Dubai Mall where women from the community joined in on the relevant discussions of juggling work-life balance, gender balance and inclusion.

Simultaneously, during the 3-week event, the visitors to The Dubai Mall were able to discover some of the region’s most inspiring women through an exhibition titled ‘Pillars of Success’, reflecting some of the Arab Women Awards winners over the last decade. The larger-than-life exhibition adorned the mall’s pillar, profiling almost 90 Arab women who have made significant achievements in their respective fields. The Souk Atrium was a hub for art, where women were seen working together to create a dynamic, collaborative place.
