Dubai Will Join 137 Cities For The Vital Voices Global Mentoring Walk

To mark the occasion of International Women's Day, 137 walks will hapen around the world, all on the same day!

More than 150 empowering female role models will participate on March 11 at the Dubai Polo and Equestrian Club from 7 - 10 AM. The annual event, called the Vital Voices Global Mentoring walk, began in 2008, and is the brainchild of founder and former CEO of Oxygen Media, Geraldine Laybourne.

Laybourne is a very powerful, very busy woman, who often invited young women who wanted her advice to join her on her morning walks, as she didn't have time to meet them during office hours. As time went by, she was scheduling women to walk with her every morning! This simple activity benefitted all those participating, and from it came the idea that is now known as the Vital Voices Global Mentoring Walk.

The walk brings together likeminded women, some established leaders in their respective fields and others looking for mentorship. All these women walk together, discussing business, ideas and career goals. 

The event in the UAE has been organised by Mompreneur Middle East, as founder Mona Tavasolli is also a Vital Voices Fellow. If you're looking to participate as a mentor, or simply pick the brains of a female role model, do sign up! It's vital for women to meet with, help and suppor each other.
