HP Middle East today announced its sponsorship and participation in the New Arab Woman Forum held this October in Beirut, Lebanon.
The two day annual event, in its second year, aimed to look at the evolving role and position of Arab women in the face of remaining challenges, and how these challenges are, or can, be dealt with.
HP’s Country Manager for Egypt and Levant, Rania Mattar, took part in the ‘Woman, Education and Technology’ panel session. The panel covered topics including how the involvement of women in technology can be supported and how can technical knowledge and experience among professional women be widened and promoted across the Arab world.
“At HP, we firmly believe that technology is a tool that empowers people – with the Arab world, like technology, forever changing and developing, it’s important to reach out to all audiences and allow them to have the latest technical products at their fingertips,” said Rania Mattar.
At the event, HP has showcased its latest products designed especially for women.
HP, the world’s largest technology company, provides printing and personal computing products and IT services, software and solutions that simplify the technology experience for consumers and businesses. HP completed its acquisition of EDS on Aug. 26, 2008. More information about HP (NYSE: HPQ) is available at http://www.hp.com/.
