ABU DHABI // The UAE’s ambassador to the United Nations is the second woman to be elected President of the UN Women Executive Board for 2017.
Lana Nusseibeh, who will be representing the Asia-Pacific Group at the UN in New York, said UN Women played a critical role within the UN and around the world as a dynamic and strong champion for women and girls.
“In the UAE, women are core partners in building and leading our prosperous society,” she told The National. “And that is a story that we want to share around the world.”
She said she aimed to demonstrate the key role that women play in senior leadership and decision-making in her homeland.
