The third workshop for Emirati Female Job Seekers in the field of Entrepreneurs in the United Arab Emirates (the UAE)
JICE implemented the third workshop for Emirati Female Job Seekers in the field of Entrepreneurs from May 31st to June 11th 2015, which was specially designed for females living in Al Ain City in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, the UAE. It was the last workshop under this project, and closing ceremony was held on the final day.
This workshop was carried out under the Cooperation Agreement with Abu Dhabi Tawteen Council (ADTC), a governmental entity established to develop and support Emiratization* strategies and plans in both the public and private sectors in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.
Following the well-received past two workshops which were held in February and April 2015, we invited lecturers and female entrepreneurs from Japan and consultants from Khalifa Fund to support Job Seekers to finalize their business plans. The curriculum included a field work and test marketing activities to stimulate more proactive opinion exchanges than the past workshops.
The Job seekers who successfully materialized their business ideas and completed business plans will proceed to apply for funding entities such as Khalifa Fund or commercial banks to realize these plans.
JICE will accelerate to implement more practical and sustainable programs by collaborating with ADTC.
*Emiratization: Name of the initiative by the government of the UAE to employ its citizens in a meaningful and efficient manner in the public and private sectors.
