The Central Bank of Egypt, the National Council for Women (NCW), and the 50th Forum announced the opening of registration for the first phase of the “women leading the future” programme, which is the first of its kind in a partnership between the government and the private sector.

This came during a general meeting, which included the executive bodies of the programme and a large number of women leaders, to identify mechanisms for activating the programme, a clear vision for the selection process of women who may participate, and to confirm the launch of workshops for the programme, which is scheduled to last nine months.

The programme aims to graduate qualified female workers in various sectors of the country, through a practical approach led by the elite and introducing a guiding system that identifies advanced leadership concepts for women, and transferring experience to a new generation of women working in various fields.

The list of women who will lead the programme’s training includes elite female leaders from different sectors, such as former ambassador and minister of family and housing Moushira Khattab, Chairperson of EFG Hermes for Finance Fatma lofty  and Nevine Al-Misiri, CEO in Ahli United Bank.
