A hallmark of any successful, modern nation is the normalization of female participation across the economy. So as Qatar edges toward its National Vision 2030, a broad blueprint for a knowledge-driven, diversified economy, the role of women has come into sharp focus. Women are increasingly present among the top echelons of Qatari business and society, assuming positions in government and on the Shura Council. Female enrollment at universities in the Gulf nation is also at an all-time high. It is in this context that The Business Year brings together a select group of female thought leaders in Qatar to raise awareness around this topic and discuss the challenges and opportunities for women in business.
