Women Investors Meeting to Focus on Women’s Role in National Economic Development



The first Women Investors Meeting will be held Feb. 22, during which time recipients of the Princess Lolowah bint Abdulaziz Award will be honored. 

The event is hosted by the Women’s Committee at the Council of Saudi Chambers (CSC) with the support of Princess Norah Al Saud, wife of the Riyadh governor.

The meeting will be moderated by Director of Businesswomen’s Committee at Riyadh Chamber of Commerce Nouf Al Rakan, and Al Saud will recognize award winners as they are selected from the Productive Families, Business Leadership and Young Leaders categories.

In addition to the distribution of awards, the meeting will consist of a speech from Director of the Women’s Department Dr. Reem Al Frayan, as well as an address from Al Saud. The meeting will also make time for a dialogue session with those concerned with supporting business growth in the kingdom.

The meeting was developed as part of CSC’s concentration on the support of, and women’s involvement in, the national economy. The Women Investors Meeting is an organized effort to begin events where Saudi businesswomen can network and discuss challenges, current projects and future goals. The events will also act as an outlet for businesswomen to talk about experiences and upcoming events that could boost women’s role in the national economic development process.
