Qatar is dedicated to empowering women, evident in its efforts for equal education, fair pay, and balanced work-family policies. These initiatives have led to increased female enrolment in universities and substantial participation in sectors like finance and healthcare. Within Qatar's real estate sector, women play vital roles, fostering innovation and growth.

Empowering Women in Various Fields

Qatari women hold key positions in ministries, diplomacy, and aviation, contributing significantly to the nation's progress. Qatar stands as a pioneer in the Gulf Cooperation Council, with women comprising over 48% of judiciary positions. Internationally, Qatar spearheaded the recognition of March 10 as the International Day of Women Judges. The nation actively involves women in peace-building efforts and encourages their participation in entrepreneurship, showcasing its commitment to gender equality.

Women's strong representation in sectors like security, entrepreneurship, and the judiciary highlights Qatar's dedication to inclusivity. The nation continues to invest in human resources and infrastructure, empowering women and ensuring their active participation in shaping Qatar's future. Cityscape Qatar's CityscapeWIRE sessions echo this commitment, creating avenues for women to break barriers and drive progress.
