Women Professionals Summit 2023 Sheds Light on Golden Decade for Attaining Success in Women’s Lives

The activities of the Woman Professionals Summit in its second edition 2023 shed light on the age of women, who are between 25 and 35 years old, highlighting that this period represents the utmost importance for women who want to create their own experiences, build their careers and enable the mind to work with greater capacity to achieve goals, which showed that standing on the stories of successful women at this age represents practical lessons that must be listened to.

The Woman Professional Summit was launched under the auspices of Prime Minister Dr. Mustafa Madbouly and organized by the Top 50 forum headed by the media figure Dina Abdel-Fattah and in partnership with the National Council for Women and Amwal Al-Ghad magazine.

The fifth session of the conference included Hadeer Shalaby, Executive Director of Talabat, and Fatma El Shenawy, Co-Founder & Chief Strategy Officer at Khazna, and Ahella El Saban, Co-founder & CCO Exits MENA platform for the investment services market, and Dalia Laz Founder of “Esorus” to connect suppliers and designers in the field of decoration and architecture, and the session moderator was Nelly Mahmoud, Chief Communication Officer & Head of Youth Beyond Banking & Financial Inclusions at EGbank.

In this context, Hadeer Shalaby said that these years are of utmost importance for women who want to create their own experiences and build their careers, noting that successful models motivate others to achieve their goals because they represent practical lessons for current generations.

She continued during the second edition of the Woman Professionals Summit 2023-Top 50 forum under the title (Empowering Women…Egypt’s Strength and Future), that respect for women in the labor market has increased, during the recent period, while respecting their decisions and management also in companies.

On her part, Fatma El Shenawy confirmed that women go through many stages in their lives that put them in front of two options, either to go through the experience with its risks to prove themselves in the labor market, or to retreat without achieving that.

While Dalia Laz confirmed that the current period is witnessing an increase in global focus on enhancing women’s representation and participation in all fields, with great support.

Laz also assured the importance of women getting the advantage of this focus, support, and seizing the available opportunities, not only that but also working hard to prove their worth, pointing out that women can do more than one job and also love the challenge.

She reviewed her experience in moving from working for an engineering company to being an entrepreneur, saying that at the beginning of her professional life, she began working in an engineering entity to gain practical experience before taking the step of launching her own business.

Laz indicated that there is a difference between a business owner and an entrepreneur, explaining that the idea of entrepreneurship is based on an unconventional idea to find solutions to problems facing society, while the business owner doesn’t know the needs of the market.

She noted that she worked on herself, started from scratch, and joined entrepreneurship programs, that’s why she was able to launch a platform that brings together all suppliers and designers in the field of decoration and architecture.

In the same context, Ahella El Saban said that women in Egypt have all the ingredients to become entrepreneurs in many fields, despite some obstacles, such as social pressures on women requiring them to reconcile between family and work commitments.

Al-Sabban added that women were suffering to obtain some financing for their startup companies’ expansions, as investment funds used to put only about 2% of the value of the fund to finance companies that are based on the female component due to the high-risk rate.

Al-Sabban mentioned that Exit’s platform has changed this idea for many investors through the ability to provide studies and advisory services for companies with a female component in all financial services, mergers, and acquisitions to urge them to various expansions….
