First Abu Dhabi Bank (FAB) has partnered with Women in Family Business (WiFB), a global content platform that empowers women to share their expertise and insights related to family enterprise and wealth, to launch a new thought leadership initiative for female business and wealth owners. This collaboration aims to empower women as they assume increasingly prominent roles in family businesses and drive innovation in an ever-changing world.
Supported by FAB Global Private Banking, the newly developed series, ‘Leadership and Innovation in the Family Enterprise’, will delve into the key factors that enable female leaders to drive growth, enhance efficiency, promote collaboration, and make a positive impact on society and the environment. Through insightful content and engaging conversations, the series will shed light on the unique approaches and perspectives that women bring to the world of family businesses.
As traditional paradigms are challenged, FAB believes it is essential to explore the impact of women leaders on their family legacies. With more women attaining wealth and assuming leadership positions than ever before, this collaboration between FAB and WiFB will focus on investigating the strategies and skills employed by female family enterprise leaders and wealth owners to foster a culture of innovation.
Ramia Marielle El Agamy, Co-Founder of WiFB, said: “Our goal is to add more women’s voices to the family enterprise conversation. We want future generations to have a gender-balanced pool of business best-practice to learn from. Our collaboration with FAB Global Private Banking is founded on our shared commitment towards highlighting the incredible achievements of women around the world and how they are shaping their family legacies through innovation.”
Samira Zakour, MD & Head of Private Banking & KCG, UAE at FAB Global Private Banking, said: “Our collaboration with WiFB provides a powerful force for change as family businesses continue to evolve. As a forward-driven institution, we are committed to creating an inclusive landscape where the pivotal role that women play in shaping the future of family enterprises is recognised, understood, and fully supported. We believe that innovation, diversity, and empowerment are essential for success, and we are dedicated to providing the resources and support that women need to thrive as highly effective leaders.”
