Cairo, August 20, 2008 – Air-Bridge Network announced today the inauguration of it’s first workshop for women in Egypt. The debut of Air Bridge Network was a day to mark the beginnings of a momentum that will build up to create unity and change in the face of businesswomen community in Egypt, said
It was with this awareness that Air Bridge Network idea was formulated. The circumstance of its inception is formidable too. Fadel was selected in April-May 2008from Egypt to participate in a program FORTUNE/U.S. State Department Global Women’s Mentoring Partnership, administered by Vital Voices, a preeminent non-governmental organization with an impressive board of directors, honorary chair Hillary Rodham Clinton (US Senator and Former First Lady) and chair of the board, Melanne Verveer (Former Assistant to the US President & Chief of Staff to the First Lady) to name a few. Fadel was matched with Jocelyne Attal, Avaya’s Chief Marketing Officer. It was during the time of the mentorship that she came up with the idea of a workshop where Attal would mentor-at-large. Attal a visionary in her own right readily agreed and so Fadel on her return started putting it together and branded it ‘Air Bridge Network.’ "Nayera was an exceptional member of the Fortune/US State Department program. Her vision in developing Air Bridge demonstrates her strong talents and commitment to business women around the world," said Jocelyne Attal, Avaya CMO. "I believe this initial endeavor is just the tip of what Air Bridge can accomplish and that we will all be hearing about Nayera and her work for years to come."
The workshop was sponsored by both
It is noteworthy to mention that the idea of the program FORTUNE/U.S. State Department Global Women’s Mentoring Partnership came to Dina Habib Powell, an Egyptian American and former US Assistant Secretary of State, who believes that women are the greatest catalysts to change. So the idea is taking its natural course in
Egypt and progressing to a venture that can take that notion to another reality and make it stronger.

Trying to realize the understanding of local issues without the working global perspective and vice versa leads to a limited outlook, while getting both creates the full view and integration of all resources and energy. The main resource for anything is always the human-being and getting every human on board with the ‘full view’ will generate the input necessary to bridge disparities of our global community. The workshops provide the opportunity to understand our worlds better through each other, then in that context to understand ourselves better. When we can see the World, see how other people live and what they think, it helps add up to who we are as professionals and allows every one of us to do every single job in that full spectrum of light rather than one ray of light.
These talks, enriches every person and allows us to raise the bar, to do well and better at times, to seek help and assist others where we can. This connection is what will preserve, enhance and make us realize our full potential as beings living together in this globe.
