Under the patronage of H.E. Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak Al Nahayan, Minister of Higher Education & Scientific Research and Chancellor of the Higher Colleges of Technology (HCT), the HCT Dubai Women’s College inaugurated its annual event – the Insight Dubai conference. This conference focuses on women and empowerment and brings together more than 150 Emirati and international students to discuss and exchange knowledge on women’s issues.

The conference, which is being held for the ninth time in 2013, aims to expand participants’ global awareness regarding differing views on selected women’s issues and exploring Arabic governance structures and legal systems. The conference’s interactive style allows participants to dispel cultural myths about women and facilitate lasting bonds and networks between conference participants through academic, cultural and entertainment experiences.
