Middlesex University Dubai supports the #HeForShe initiative

  • March 28 2018

Middlesex University Dubai is proud to be one of the first universities in Dubai to support the #HeForShe initiative for gender equality. The campaign was organised by our Media Students and Club Impact and featured guest speaker Raha Moharrak, the first Saudi woman to Climb Mount Everest. Dr Cedwyn Fernandes, Director of Middlesex University Dubai, along with other faculty members, signed the pledge for gender equality on behalf of the University.

The event saw several activities, performances and speeches, including an Instagram photo booth whereby students and staff were encouraged to have their photograph taken after they’d taken their pledge to support the campaign, initiated by UN Women. Guest speaker Raha Moharrak then gave an impassionate and powerful talk about the importance of chasing your dreams and being fearless regardless of your background and gender.

As a result of the hard work of our students, Maha Waseem, Daniel Shepherd and Arwa Kharawala, 324 pledges have been made on the official HeForShe website as a result of their attempt to raise awareness.
