Rana Alnasir-Boulos

Director Business Development, EITEP Institute, Germany (Chair)

I am thrilled to embrace the role of Chairperson for the esteemed Global Women Forum, where my personal passions for cultural exchange, economic development, and women's empowerment converge. With a background as the Director of Business Development at EITEP (Euro Institute for Information and Technology Transfer in Environmental Protection), I bring a wealth of experience in fostering international collaboration and spearheading initiatives in the water, energy, environment, and infrastructure sector.

At EITEP, I have had the privilege of driving the institute's strategic growth and expansion. By organizing high-level conferences, workshops, and training programs, I have facilitated the exchange of knowledge and technology transfer among professionals worldwide. Building strategic partnerships with government agencies, industry associations, and academic institutions has been integral to our success.

My passion for women's empowerment is deeply rooted in my personal and professional journey. I firmly believe that when women are given equal opportunities, they can truly excel and make significant contributions to society. Through my work, I aim to provide a platform that not only facilitates networking and mentorship but also empowers women to embrace leadership roles, shatter glass ceilings, and drive positive change in their communities. I am committed to dismantling barriers and promoting inclusivity to ensure that women in business have the tools and support they need to thrive.

My vision as Chairperson of the Global Women Forum is to create a vibrant and inclusive networking platform that not only empowers women in business but also fosters cross-cultural understanding and promotes sustainable practices. By forging strong alliances and fostering collaboration, we will strengthen the ties between Europe and the Arab region, promoting economic growth and creating a supportive environment for women to thrive.

Together, we will build bridges, unlock opportunities, shape a brighter future where women's potential knows no bounds and pave the way for a more equitable and prosperous future.
