Careers UAE 2017   


Women’s Empowerment

Hopscotch Empowerment Conference

 The objective of the conference is to inspire and educate women about empowerment and the work and support options available in the UAE for them. The aim is that every woman should leave the event with a clear vision of how she will use the knowledge gained and contacts met through out the day to further progress her career and work/life balance.

Inspirational Speakers

 The Hopscotch Conference will host several inspirational speakers, such as Omaira Al Alama (Founder ALF) around the topic of empowering women and how to achieve it in your everyday life.  We have collaborated with women who have had real-life experience in their struggles to reach the top and managed to balance this with family life.

Talk show, Panel, Q&As

  Featuring the region’s top employers and employment experts from the likes of Nestle and Mastercard, we will have several sessions dedicated to demonstrating what women’s options are, how to access them and why women at work are so important.


Coaching Sessions:

 It would not be a Hopscotch Event if our ladies didn’t leave with a ‘to do’ checklist to achieve their dreams!  We will have expert coaches and trainers on hand to spell out exactly how to tap into your own sources of empowerment and just what’s needed to carry these lessons forward into your everyday life.

Meet & Greet Stations 

Factored into our day will be networking breaks during which our audience will be encouraged to speak directly with employers and supporters of women who will be there to interact.  We would suggest those looking for jobs bring along a copy of their CV!
