لقاء الرابطة اللبنانية لسيدات العمل "انضموا لنتطوّر معاً"

 
ودّعت الرابطة اللبنانية لسيدات العمل العام 2015 الممتلئ بالنشاطات في لقائها الشهري التواصلي "Join&Grow"(انضموا لنتطور معاً) بمحاضرة ألقاها المهندس والناشط البيئي زياد أبي شاكر تحت عنوان "الطريق إلى مجتمع خالٍ من المخلّفات Zero waste"، وذلك مساء الخميس 3 كانون الأول في غاليري ماريا هاليوس Maria Halios Gallery، مار مخايل.
حضر اللقاء نحو أربعين شخصاً من مجلس الرابطة والأعضاء والأصدقاء، مقدمة الجلقة أمينة صندوق مجلس الرابطة كاريل عقليان مومجيان التي أعلنت عن فتح المجال أمام الراغبين من الأعضاء للمشاركة في Vital Voices Grow fellowship للعام 2016 -2017، وذلك لتعزيز قدرات سيدات العمل في مجالاتهم. ويتضمن البرنامج التدريب وتنمية مهارات القيادة والمساعدة التقنية وتأمين فرص التواصل.
كما أعلنت عن الدورة التدريبية في التاسع من الشهرالقادم، والتي تقوم بها الرابطة بالتعاون مع البنك اللبناني للتجارة Bank BLC، ومحورها "كيف تحضر مخطط عملك"، وستعقد في مركز البنك التعليمي في الأشرفية من الساعة التاسعة والنصف قبل الظهر وحتى الواحدة بعد الظهر.
ووزعت الرابطة برامجها التدريبية للفصل الأول من العام 2016، وللإطلاع على صفحة الرابطة على الفايسبوك.
خلال محاضرته، شرح المهندس والناشط البيئي أبي شاكر عن تجربته الشخصية منذ نحو عشرين سنة وحتى اليوم، في الوصول إلى مستوى الصفر في المخلّفات عبر ايجاد طرق معالجة النفايات وتدويرها، عارضاً لطرق التعامل مع النفايات في العالم، احداها تقوم على أن لا قيمة للنفايات وبالتالي تشكّل الأخيرة مشكلة وحلّها الإجرائي على الأرض يتلخص بضغطها وطمرها، وأما الثانية فتعتبر النفايات مواداً أوّلية يجدر بنا استخدامها بشكل يفيد الاقتصاد المحلي من دون التسبب بأي ضرر صحي أو بيئي.
وتحدث عن طرق التدوير الذي ينتج سماداً من المواد العضوية، ومنتجات أخرى من المواد الصلبة.
وختم أبي شاكر بالقول إن تجربته التي بدأت بمبادرة شخصية وعلى مستوى ضيق، لأنها تستدعي قبول البلديات والناس بالفكرة والمشاركة بفرز النفايات من المصدر (أي المنازل)، سمحت له بالصمود نحو عشرين سنة، ما يشجّع على الاستمرار بها.
بعد المحاضرة، فتح المجال للنقاش.
يذكر أن الرابطة اللبنانية لسيدات العمل، تقوم شهرياً بلقاء من هذا النوع تحت عنوان "Join&Grow"، تربط فيه بين الاستفادة والفن والموسيقى.

Two -days Event, 13th & 14th April 2012

 350 women from across the region gathered in Dubai for the MENA Businesswomen’s Network Forum (DUBAI, UAE) —

The MENA Businesswomen’s Network (MENA BWN) Forum concluded in Dubai with a roundtable discussion between some of the region’s most prominent businesswomen, including several of Arabian Business’s list of the 100 Most Powerful Women in the Arab World.
The two-day event drew over 350 businesswomen from across the Middle East and North Africa, and was held under the patronage of HE Sheikha Lubna Al Qasimi, UAE Minister of Foreign Trade. Hosted by Dubai Business Women Council, the Forum received support from MENA BWN’s global partners - Vital Voices Global Partnership and the ExxonMobil Foundation. The organizers have announced that the upcoming edition of the forum will be held in 2014.

Hanan Saab, President of The Lebanese League of Women in Business and a founding member of the MENA Businesswomen’s Network, said “The World bank studies indicate that the large population of educated women in the MENA remains an untapped resource. Women participation in the workforce remains less than one third of its potential. This First MENA BWN Forum is launched to highlight the comparative advantage of the Middle East and North Africa region, and how it can amplify its economic growth by enhancing the skills and participation of women in business.

With the theme “Unleashing the Economic Potential of Women in the MENA Region,” the Forum kicked off Thursday morning with a keynote address by Sheikha Lubna, highlighting the collective nature of the event and remarking how the Forum’s goal is for each woman to gain the skills necessary to achieve success.
The Middle East and North Africa Businesswomen’s Network 2012 Forum was held at the Park Hyatt Dubai. The organizer, MENA Businesswomen’s Network, represents over 2,500 members from Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, Qatar, Tunisia, and the UAE.
The Forum was made possible by a grant from the ExxonMobil Foundation.  The ExxonMobil Foundation has provided funding of more than US$5 million dollars to Vital Voices Global Partnership to support the strategic development of businesswomen’s networks.
