    Generating equal opportunities for women is not just a global priority but also part of Egypt’s national agenda for continued economic development. This imperative goal of the Egyptian government forms the core of our Ministerial panel’s discussion where we delve into topics such as:

    •  Whilst there are a growing number of commendable initiatives, research studies and policies that governments have devised, are these adequate to drive the agenda in reality? How is the government strategically bridging the gap between policy for gender parity and its implementation across the oil and gas sector? What are the metrics being used to access success?
    • How can the Egyptian youth be involved in gender disparity related challenges particularly in their workplace? Is there enough training for young oil and gas professionals entering the industry on the importance and relevance of achieving gender parity at the beginning of their careers?
    • Dissecting Egypt’s economic reforms from foreign direct investments to innovative investment policies with Egypt’s first female Investment Minister at the helm
    • How can Egyptian oil and gas industry expats contribute to the discussion on gender equality initiatives both globally and within Egypt?
