The UAE’s Telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions Reg­u­la­tory Au­thor­ity (TRA) marks Emi­rati Women’s Day.

SHEIKH ZAYED’S ROLE ALSO RECOG­NISED

The United Arab Emi­rates’ Telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions Reg­u­la­tory Au­thor­ity (TRA) marked Emi­rati Women’s Day on Au­gust 28 with sev­eral events and ac­tiv­i­ties.

The cel­e­bra­tion high­lighted the role of the late Sheikh Zayed in sup­port­ing Emi­rati women. The event in­cluded a video in which fe­male em­ploy­ees em­pha­sised main­tain­ing Sheikh Zayed’s ap­proach.

There was also a livestream broad­cast through so­cial me­dia chan­nels, aim­ing to en­cour­age and mo­ti­vate Emi­rati women to work in the field of in­for­ma­tion se­cu­rity.

The TRA also hosted re­search and au­thor Sheikha Al Ghawi, who spoke about Sheikh Zayed’s sup­port for Emi­rati women, as well as hosted lawyer Salha Al-Basti, who spoke about pos­i­tiv­ity in life, self-de­vel­op­ment and per­se­ver­ance.

In ad­di­tion, the event in­cluded a tra­di­tional gath­er­ing with the guest-writ­ers at TRA of­fices in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, fol­lowed by a tra­di­tional break­fast and visit to the Women’s Mu­seum to see the Fine Arts ex­hi­bi­tion or­gan­ised for the oc­ca­sion.

To kick off Emi­rati Women’s Day, TRA Di­rec­tor Gen­eral H.E. Ha­mad Obaid Al Man­soori sent an SMS greet­ing to all fe­male em­ploy­ees. Said Al Man­soori: “Emi­rati women have al­ways been full part­ners in the process of build­ing, progress and de­vel­op­ment sup­ported by the wise lead­er­ship start­ing with the found­ing fa­thers, in par­tic­u­lar the late Sheikh Zayed.”

Al Man­soori added: “This year’s cel­e­bra­tions co­in­cide with our cel­e­bra­tion of the ‘Year of Zayed,’ the man who be­lieved in the Emi­rati woman’s abil­ity to con­trib­ute in all fields. He al­ways sup­ported her, and was keen that she re­ceives all her rights. He opened the doors of ed­u­ca­tion and work for her to achieve un­prece­dented con­stant suc­cess in all fields, with the sup­port of H.H. Sheikha Fa­tima Bint Mubarak, Pres­i­dent of the Gen­eral Women’s Union, Supreme Chair­per­son of the Fam­ily De­vel­op­ment Foun­da­tion, Pres­i­dent of the Supreme Coun­cil for Moth­er­hood and Child­hood, who contributed to en­hanc­ing the pres­ence of Emi­rati women through pro­vid­ing en­abling pro­grammes and en­gag­ing them in de­vel­op­ment pro­grammes in all ar­eas of pub­lic life. Her High­ness has ad­vanced women’s work to new di­men­sions by adopt­ing pro­grammes and ini­tia­tives aimed at en­hanc­ing the role of women all over the world, as we can find her achieve­ments to­day in all parts of the world.

“Our wise lead­er­ship has fol­lowed Sheikh Zayed’s ap­proach in women’s em­pow­er­ment. This wise vi­sion has been deeply rooted in the think­ing and ap­proach of H. H. Sheikh Khal­ifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Pres­i­dent of the UAE, who en­hanced women’s sup­port by launch­ing am­bi­tious pro­grammes and widen­ing her hori­zons, to be­come an es­sen­tial part­ner in var­i­ous ar­eas of na­tional work, and to as­sume the high­est po­lit­i­cal, ex­ec­u­tive and leg­isla­tive po­si­tions as well as var­i­ous se­nior lead­er­ship po­si­tions re­lated to de­vel­op­ment of strate­gies and de­ci­sion-mak­ing.”

To­day, the Emi­rati woman stands side by side with her brother in all as­pects of prac­ti­cal and sci­en­tific life, full of am­bi­tion and mo­ti­vated by hope of tak­ing her coun­try to the high­est lev­els of suc­cess and hap­pi­ness.”
