The criterion, categories and requirements of the Emirates Businesswomen Awards to be held in May 2006 were presented during the event, which was attended by previous winners of the award and members of Sharjah, Dubai and Abu Dhabi Businesswomen's Council. The Emirates Businesswomen Award is organised jointly by Shell and DQG to recognise the role and contribution of businesswomen to UAE's economy and growth.

The award honours women in the UAE who have excelled in their field and have made a difference with their leadership and skill. Speaking on the occasion, Abdul Qader Obaid Ali, Chairman, Dubai Quality Group, said: "The Emirates Businesswomen Award was instituted by DQG, in association with Shell, to give a renewed impetus to women's emergence as businesswomen and corporate achievers by creating role models to inspire others.

We are glad that the award has been successful in achieving this primary objective. This award is designed not only to recognise winners but to be used as a self-assessment tool for continuous development." Obaid Ali also highlighted that for the 2006 edition of EBWA the applicants will be receiving one-to-one feedback, in addition to coaching for the shortlisted applicants.

Hussain Al Mahmoudi, Head of External Affairs and HSSE (Health, Safety, Security and Environment), Shell, said: "The Emirates Businesswoman Award has today evolved into one of the most prestigious awards in the UAE. The award is seen as the ultimate recognition for excellence among the country's women entrepreneurs and business professionals. Time and again, women have proved that when it comes to ability and professional excellence, they are as good as men, if not better. For proof, we need to look no farther than the UAE, where women continue to outnumber men in the job sector."
