Her Royal Highness Princess Adelah Bint Abdullah Bin Adbulaziz Al Saud, the influential daughter of His Royal Highness King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, has given Her endorsement to and will officially open the upcoming 2nd Annual Kingdom Women In Leadership Forum.

The announcement was made by the organisers and hosts, leading French business information group naseba. The initiative is taking place on December 4th – 5th 2011, at the Al Faisaliah Hotel in Riyadh.

It will unite an acclaimed line-up of women leaders from across the Kingdom, providing an educational networking platform for women looking to contribute and give back to society. The two days will host up to 250 delegates exploring the importance of contributing to society for the Kingdom’s economic prosperity, and aims to inspire Saudi Arabian women in the business community.

“Women in the Kingdom must be given the opportunity to participate in social development in all areas. The Kingdom Women in Leadership Forum is an excellent opportunity for women to examine their role in the economy and develop their entrepreneurial skills. I truly believe that forums such as this will help pave the way for the future of women throughout the country,” explained Her Royal Highness Princess Adelah Bint Abdullah Bin Adbulaziz Al Saud.

The forum focuses on the development of women in leadership roles within Saudi Arabia – in both business and society. Based on these elements, it will touch on a number of topics that outline success strategies in entrepreneurship, family business and charitable organisations.

Creator of the Women in Leadership series and CEO of naseba, Sophie Le Ray enthused: “We are honoured to be working under the patronage of Her Royal Highness Princess Adelah Bint Abdullah Bin Adbulaziz Al Saud. This collaboration is the result of a shared vision of the role successful women have in the Kingdom. Her Royal Highness’ vision of presenting Saudi Arabia as a multicultural and progressive country through the expansion of education and entrepreneurship is in perfect alignment with the Kingdom Women in Leadership Forum.”
