The Telecommunication Regulatory Authority (TRA) is set to participate as a ‘Bronze Partner’ in the upcoming “Mother of The Nation – Pride of The UAE” campaign – created in order to celebrate and honour the work of H.H. Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, Chairwoman of the General Women’s Union (GWU), Supreme Chairperson of Family Development Foundation (FDF) and the Honorary President of the Emirates Business Women Council. Held under the patronage of the Department of Presidential Affairs, this event will take place on Sunday 23rd March 2014 in Emirates Palace Hotel.
“Our support for this event is an expression of our deep appreciation for the initiatives lead by H.H. Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak and her invaluable contribution in supporting the role of women. Participating in this initiative falls in line with the TRA’s extensive CSR program and underlines our belief that public sector has a significant role to play in pioneering the progress of women according to the directives of the Leadership,” commented H.E. Mohamed Nasser Al Ghanim, TRA Director General.
“We applaud the fantastic work being done by the UAE Business Women Council. The direct impact being made by this organization in accelerating the progression of Emirati women and enhancing their contribution in the business world is something that should be supported wholeheartedly,” he added.
The latest edition of the annual celebration will involve an entirely new component to previous years as The Emirates Business Women Council have organized an accompanying event specifically to showcase the life and work of Her Highness. Under the theme of “An evening of gratitude for the Lady of boundless generosity”, the event will consist of a photo exhibition that highlights Her Highness’ contribution to the progression of women globally in addition to public showings of some of Her Highness’ most recognised speeches and poems.
The Board will issue a commemorative book titled “Mother of The Nation – Pride of The UAE” which will shed the light on a number of aspects of Her Highness’ life and her direct involvement in advancing the position of women both at home and across the world.
