Vandana Srivastava, a Dubai-based legal consultant, said: "The IWEP has been designed in such a way so that the participants can select the most critical issues women are facing and the deliberations can then be done by a set of experts."
Speaking at the first International Women Empowerment Programme (IWEP) on Saturday at Mina A'Salam Jumeirah, Marwaai drew severe criticism from Saudi Arabia's conservative community and her extended family before she pursued a full-fledged career as a yoga therapist.
IWEP = 1 / 3 (Index of Women Employees + Ratio of Male and Female Income + Index of Women Professionals)
Comparing the performance of the countries based on IWEP, we note that progress of none of the four countries is beyond Low-to-Medium level.
A good example is the Hanoi-based Institute of World Economics and Politics (IWEP
), which has been involved in an extensive consultative process with government agencies on foreign policy-relevant issues such as non-traditional security, the future of economic integration within ASEAN, Vietnam's interests, and its role towards the Greater Mekong Sub-region, Sino-Vietnamese relations, to name a few examples.
To recognise and celebrate the achievements and potential of women from different walks of life and different parts of world on one platform, the Consulate-General of India in Dubai will organise a world women convention titled the International Women Empowerment Programme (IWEP
) on April 7 at Mina A'Salam Madinat Jumeirah.
