Jordanian Entrepreneur Honoured for Educational Achievements in NY

Jordanian entrepreneur Hadeel Anabtawi has recently been selected as one of five women entrepreneurs around the globe who are recognised for advancing the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and inspiring communities to create change by 2030. 

The first-of-its-kind global business competition for women entrepreneurs, the WE Empower Challenge honours one female entrepreneur from each of the five UN regions, inviting them to convene to New York City during the week of the UN General Assembly on September 24-29 to attend high-level events and run for the opportunity to receive a $20,000 grant, according to the WE Empower website.

“I feel really honoured and proud to be recognised by a global competition like WE Empower and I am excited to have the opportunity to meet key leaders, experts and decision makers in NYC, where I can work on scaling my work at The Alchemist Lab to have higher impact and reach more children as this is our main current focus,” Anabtawi told The Jordan Times. 

The only Arab awardee, Anabtawi will represent the Asia-Pacific region by introducing her decade-long work promoting children’s education through various initiatives such as the educational centres The Alchemist Lab and the female scientific programme, “Go Girls!”.

Voicing her admiration for Her Majesty Queen Rania, whom she said “is an inspiring role model to many women and is encouraging many initiatives led by women as well as many NGOs and organisations who are working hard to build women capacity to join workforce or to become more entrepreneurs”, Anabtawi called for more female role models to inspire young women.

During the conference, Anabtawi and the four other awardees will partake in a number of high-level events, such as the UN Global Compact Leaders Summit, a dialogue with the Council of Women World Leaders, the We the People Summit, the G-5 Collective Dinner and the Global Citizen Summit, according to the WE Empower website.
