BUILD­ING YOUR NET­WORK

Qatar Today - - AFFAIRS -

At the up­com­ing How Women Work con­fer­ence, net­work­ing is boiled down to a sci­ence – who we are, how we net­work and with whom we speak. It is truly about con­nect­ing the dots be­tween our lives and oth­ers’.

How Women Work has al­ways been about con­nect­ing peo­ple – as it states in our mis­sion: “We reach hearts and minds, break down bar­ri­ers and pro­mote un­der­stand­ing be­tween cul­tures and gen­ders.” This year, for our sev­enth an­nual con­fer­ence, we are delv­ing even more deeply into the sub­ject mat­ter with our theme “Con­nect­ing the Dots”, which is all about mov­ing for­ward to­gether be­cause we can achieve more when we col­lab­o­rate than when we com­pete.

It is about in­volv­ing men in cocre­at­ing gen­der equal­ity; it is about get­ting cor­po­rates on board and com­mit­ted. In brief, it is about cre­at­ing mu­tu­ally ben­e­fi­cial op­por­tu­ni­ties through con­nec­tion and in­te­gra­tion.

In line with this theme, we have ded­i­cated more time and at­ten­tion to one par­tic­u­lar form of con­nec­tion, namely net­work­ing.

As we all know, there comes a point in any ven­ture or pro­ject when we can­not go at it alone, when we have to con­nect to oth­ers, form net­works, find those that com­ple­ment us and our skills, in or­der to progress and even­tu­ally suc­ceed.
