Pres­i­dent of Knowl­edge Oman

I’m priv­i­leged and hon­oured to share a few in­sights on this glo­ri­ous oc­ca­sion of the 11th an­niver­sary of Omani Women’s Day. Today, Omani women have a no­table pres­ence in many spheres of life and they are ap­pointed to many of the high­est of­fices. Omani women have been given equal op­por­tu­ni­ties to prove them­selves in the pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tors.

Omani women have in­deed proven their po­si­tion in many dif­fer­ent walks of life. They have shown col­lec­tive power to make pos­i­tive changes and have col­lab­o­rated to achieve big strides in their per­sonal and pro­fes­sional ca­pac­i­ties. They have used their voice to ad­vo­cate for other women too. That makes Omani women spe­cial.

We at Knowl­edge Oman have given equal op­por­tu­ni­ties to all women to demon­strate their po­ten­tial. We con­tinue to sup­port, de­velop and ac­knowl­edge women’s strengths and po­ten­tial. Ev­ery woman plays an im­por­tant role in de­vel­op­ing the projects and pro­grammes we of­fer to the com­mu­nity. Omani women are fo­cused, de­ter­mined and have the power to em­power.

Turn you weak­ness into strength. Learn from your mis­takes as they will help you shape the new you; turn your wounds and dis­ap­point­ments into wis­dom. It is your re­spon­si­bil­ity to move for­ward in life. Have a clear vi­sion of your life and what is the next right move for you. Avoid com­par­ing your­self with oth­ers; you are a unique in­di­vid­ual in all re­gards. Learn more about your true self in order to reach your high­est and truest po­ten­tial. Let your dream be­long to you; never al­low your­self to live for some­one else’s dream. Happy Omani Women’s Day.
