Under the patronage of  Egypt’s Prime Minister Dr. Mostafa Madbouly, the third edition of the Egyptian Women’s Summit will take place on March 3rd and 4th. The Top 50 Women Forum organizes the summit in partnership with the National Council for Women and the European Union. The event will witness international and local attendance,  bringing together senior government officials, experts, specialists, representatives of international organizations, high-level women leaders, as well as university students and development initiative owners.

The summit’s new edition, under the theme of “360 Guide Towards a Women’s Prosperous Life”, aims to empower change and strengthen the capacity building of women in their professional and social lives. It also seeks to facilitate an effective exchange of recommendations on continuing progress toward gender equality and leveraging women’s participation in leadership positions. Additionally, the summit aims to forge real connections among female professionals in key sectors, to address the major challenges faced by professional women through the power of networking, and collaboration, as well as ensure the provision of necessary financing programs and mechanisms for qualifying women to enhance their success and strengthen their role in expediting development goals.

The inaugural edition of the exhibition “Great Women of Egypt”  will be launched, featuring the encyclopedic pictorial documentary depicting the journey of the Egyptian women’s renaissance, with the support of the European Union. The summit pursues empowering change, and real-world capacity building for women in their professional and social lives through actionable strategies.

The sessions will showcase effective recommendations to further advance society toward gender equality and promote women’s participation in leadership positions. the summit will also witness the launch of an extensive job fair that provides numerous professional, training, and mentoring opportunities for the new generation of women.

The summit enhances its impact through its proceedings. It will create sustainable connections among women in all fields to elevate levels of inspiration for the new generations to achieve their own experiences and reach unprecedented levels of success. This is achieved through the launch of the first edition of the exhibition “Great Egyptian Women” in collaboration with the European Union. The exhibition documents the journey of Egyptian women’s renaissance throughout history and contains the largest illustrated encyclopedia of important Egyptian female figures who have achieved remarkable success in various fields, leaving their names engraved in golden letters on the memory and future of the nation. This nourishes the sense of belonging and positivity among the new generations who are seeking success and excellence.

The summit also witnesses the launch of the first employment fair, under the theme of “Empower Women to Empower Egypt,” enabling women to explore the best career choices. The fair provides employment opportunities for graduates, as well as internship opportunities for students.

Offered in cooperation with development partners, such opportunities will enable them to be eligible to enter into the labor market, which will spread positive vibes during the forum. Additionally, workshops will offer a guide for attendees about making knowledgeable career decisions, open new horizons for developing students’ competitive capabilities, and prepare them to navigate the professional journey. Each participating institution is offered a pavilion to share information for participating attendees who will engage in direct dialogues with job seekers, offering career advice through interactive sessions.

The summit showcases inspiring experiences in gender equity within the government and private sector while envisioning opportunities to enhance the future role of professional women through the integration of female leaders with the new generations represented in the summit, including university youth and recent graduates. The summit also aims to introduce the value, perspectives, communication opportunities, and know-how about shaping their own experiences amid international and regional circumstances accompanied by geopolitical conflicts and economic stagnation, where the voice of Egyptian women is much needed as a soft power capable of crafting their own experiences and influencing their local and regional environment.

The event will present several activities and discussions about enhancing professional growth opportunities and guidance for women. The event focuses on developing professional lives and reaching high positions, ranging from entrepreneurship to leadership, public relations, finance, career advancement, strategic planning, leadership skills, and enhancing communication skills for suitable job opportunities.


Further, an extensive exhibition area will be available for women entrepreneurs, aiming to promote women’s projects and unleash their potential. It also focuses on developing women’s skills in entrepreneurship and motivating them to enter this sector. The event’s agenda entails competition to select the best project during the exhibition. The project will receive a monetary prize in support of its operations and necessary technical consultations.

The Founder and Chairperson of the Top 50 Women Forum, Dina Abdel Fattah, said that the current edition of the summit aims to create a broad movement at all levels. Further, it will empower Egyptian women and mitigate the obstacles that hinder the empowerment efforts.  Hence,  short-term strategies will be set based on international and regional experiences to facilitate partnerships between different stakeholders to bridge the gender gap. It also calls for adopting incentivizing measures at the government and private sector levels.

She added that the forum, in collaboration with many local and international partners, aims to bridge the knowledge gap related to women’s empowerment in society. It contributes to building a unified framework that establishes women’s empowerment as a promising economic opportunity, especially in the current global conditions and repercussions affecting the Egyptian state. It is not just a societal responsibility or an improvement of the overall image, but a long-term initiative. The current edition of the summit seeks to achieve this through various open discussions.


Abdel Fattah pointed out that the summit will take place at a time when Egyptian women receive a lot of attention from the political leadership and are being empowered at all levels. This has led to a noticeable improvement in the status of women in Egypt and their political, economic, and social participation. However, despite these achievements, Egypt, like other Arab and African countries, still suffers from a wide gender gap, especially in terms of economic and political participation. In this context, it is important to address some crucial points during the conference concerning this issue.
