Our MENA regional hub for girls’ educational leaders is an integral part of the Brookings Initiative “A Global Network to Strengthen and Empower Girls’ Education Leaders”. The hub brings together girls’ education leaders from different countries and various sectors of society who work at the forefront towards changing the perceptions of women in work, thereby facilitating girls transition from education to the labor market. We strengthen the leaders’ efforts and maximize their impact by providing an opportunity to connect, share and exchange knowledge and gain access to capacity building activities. Leaders also benefit from a global pool of experts and a dynamic source of knowledge, assembled by the global Brookings Initiative of which our regional hub forms an integral part.
