The second WILD Riyadh event held on February 28th witnessed massive success having gathered over 130 women around the topics of gender equality, female support systems, and inspiration. It was also the launch of WILD’s unique and official membership WILD Women Collective – a 360 approach to combining wellness and leadership for women to create balanced success.
Sharing insights, knowledge, expertise, and inspiring stories of how they overcame challenges in their lives and careers, speakers of the event included a range of expatriates and Saudi nationals. There were also great networking opportunities with women of different races, ethnicities, cultures, ages, and career roles, in attendance.
“WILD Riyadh was a huge success. It was great to see some of the younger females, the next generation of leaders. I felt comfortable sharing my story to inspire others. We often face the same issues, and it’s good to have support and know we are not alone,” commented Noha Zagzoug, Associate, PIF.
Created to showcase the importance of building communities for women to engage, connect, be heard, and thrive, WILD continues its expansion plans across the Middle East. The platform has recently signed a partnership agreement with Saudi Projects and plans to roll out a series of events in KSA, with the next being a WILD Transformational Leadership Day in October 2023.
“We couldn’t be prouder and more excited about our growth into KSA. WILD Riyadh energy was unmatched, and it was phenomenal to see such a diverse mix of women come together. As the first to enter the Kingdom, we are thrilled to be able to support women in creating balanced success and being the only women’s network to connect women across borders. This is just the beginning, and I am proud to blaze a trail, paving the way for gender equality,” said Emma Burdett, Founder of WILD.
WILD is a movement geared towards gender equality, transforming corporations and individuals through female networks, transformational private 1.1 coaching, group masterminds, and live events.
