Survey on returning to employment after a break

One of our member’s, Rajul from the Art Circle, has forwarded a survey. Her son is a member of Global Shapers Community by the World Economic Forum who are working on a project to support women in Dubai to return to work after a break.

Are you a woman in Dubai who took time away from work and would now be interested in working again? If yes, we would love to know more about you!

World Economic Forum’s Global Shapers Community in Dubai is exploring ways to support women to return to work after a break. In order to better understand your experiences and needs, we are conducting a short survey: https://forms.gle/M7nMVWax4GuMuBEK9?lang=en

Please take part in the survey before 30th June, if it applies to you, and/or circulate the survey in your networks to help it reach as many women as possible who may be looking to return to work 🙂 It will only take 2-4 minutes. Thank you!
