Trump will attend the forum to take place at Madinat Jumeirah from February 16-17 along with former British Prime Minister Theresa May.

President of the UAE Gender Balance Council, President of Dubai Women Establishment, and wife of Shaikh Mansour Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, UAE Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs, said: “With an extraordinary political career spanning over two decades, which saw her rise to become one of the world’s most influential women, Theresa May is a prime example of female potential and what women can achieve in traditionally male-dominated environments. As a role model for aspiring female politicians around the world, she has championed women and contributed to enhancing female representation within this field, famously stating that ‘a woman’s place is in elected office’.”

As a senior White House adviser and serving for a time as an executive vice president of the family-owned Trump Organization. Ivanka focuses on women’s education and economic empowerment as well as job creation through workforce development and skills training.
