Arab International Women's Forum
The Arab International Women’s Forum was founded in London in 2001 by Haifa Al Kaylani to support women’s economic empowerment and leadership, and advance youth engagement in the MENA region and globally.
From their base in London and from the heart of the MENA Region, AIWF convenes global and emerging leaders from government, public service, business, civil society, academia and media to create an Arab world where women are empowered to make a positive impact as equals and as leaders, in their communities, in grassroots advocacy, in parliament, in the economy, and in societal development overall.
Working closely with our Global Partners, collaboratively with international institutional partners, and across cultures with a global member base, AIWF facilitates multi-stakeholder dialogue and drives action to help women and young leaders unlock their full potential and exercise their agency in the MENA Region through education, economic empowerment, and leadership development. AIWF works to raise awareness and amplify emerging voices; shape an impactful agenda for women and youth; and drive collaborative action on sustainable development challenges.
