The organisers of the ninth Muslim World Business and Investment Zone (Muslim World Biz) annual trade exhibition and conference are making sure Muslim women who have been doing exceptional work get a chance to shine. The event, which is taking place from September 4-6 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre in Malaysia, includes The Muslim World Rania Award.
Going down on September 6, the awards ceremony recognises and celebrates amazing successes by female leaders who are impacting people’s lives on personal, organisational, national and global levels. During a special ceremony, the awards are presented to women with feats in all sections of life who conduct business with the highest standards of integrity and social responsibility.
As well as highlighting the role women play to achieve comprehensive economic development, The Muslim World Rania Award aims to pinpoint and clarify the misconceptions people have about the status of women in Islam. The congratulatory occasion also presents real stories of how women can be successful at home and in business and aims to inspire youngsters, especially girls, to attain what is within their rights. Additionally, other goals at The Muslim World Rania Award include integrating the efforts of men and women based on mutual respect and understanding and providing a path for women to connect and build sound strategies for future progress.
The Muslim World Women’s Summit is another initiative aspiring to empower women at the Muslim World Biz. Launched in 2017, the special forum was incorporated to allow award recipients to reveal their success stories and how they managed to overcome all the hurdles they encountered. Also, the winners usually respond to questions asked by the participants to help them draw upon and implement workable strategies. The Muslim World Women’s Summit, set to happen September 5 and 6, is attended by female heads and entrepreneurs, as well as women’s rights advocates.
