Women empowering women to achieve the best for all
In the wider scope of things, bringing women into the mainstream and their role in decision making at all levels is vital in maintaining a sustainable global development, and significantly improving the quality of life for individuals
Diversity of opinions, skills, talents and competencies
Empowering women promotes diversity, as every individual brings new ideas and different skills to the table, be it at home or in the office
Empowerment is not a destination rather it is a journey one must be willing to make
Women empowerment is about giving women the opportunity to shine and showcase their talents and therefore, allowed to give back to society
Empowering women requires devotion and boundless efforts
Women empowerment in its very essence is the undertaking by women to create and recreate their own purpose, regardless of the circumstances
Women empowerment is not about equality, its about individuality
“And one day she discovered that she was fierce, and strong, and full of fire, and that not even she could hold herself back because her passion burned brighter than her fears.” ― Mark Anthony
Helping women realise the sky is the limit
Empowerment of women is often discussed in forums, seminars, summits, and various programmes, yet it is rarely understood. The kind of world we live in today requires women to be empowered now more than ever.
WOMANi believes in empowering women, as empowerment is power; power to achieve success, pursue dreams and shatter glass ceilings. WOMANi aims to raise awareness, provide opportunities and celebrate the achievements and success of women from diverse backgrounds that are creating a new future in the niche industry of Islamic banking and finance.
This independence is a fundamental human right that’s also the key to achieving a more peaceful, prosperous world and getting closer to realising the SDGs.
Women have been in leadership positions since the beginning of history however, they still remain underrepresented. WOMANi attempts to change this narrative.
WOMANi is applauding and paving way for women and girls to lead in a gender equal world, where diversity and inclusion takes centre stage, and women have influence and continue to inspire.
