Her Excellency Dr. Maitha Al Shamsi conveyed the warm greetings of Her Highness Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, reiterating Her Highness's support for the committee and her keen interest in reviewing the results of the workshops and progress towards their goals. Her Highness underscored the importance of advancing the role of women in leadership, supervisory, and executive positions, fostering cooperation and partnership between the UAE and Japan, and supporting the capabilities and development of women in both countries.

Dr. Maitha Al Shamsi stated, “With the acceleration of scientific and technological progress, and developments in collaborative areas within the energy sector, sustainability has become a common concern for all countries, whether exporters or consumers. Women form an important part of the workforces that oil and gas companies seek to attract. Supporting these women through training, providing advanced technological practices, offering guidance programs, and developing their leadership skills are essential steps toward creating an inclusive work environment that provides equal opportunities for all employees.”

The forum featured workshops and discussions on best practices and policies to support women’s well-being. Attendees explored topics such as technology, well-being, and sustainability, underscoring women’s pivotal role in leading the transition towards a more sustainable energy sector.

Tsuyoshi Nakai, CEO of JCCP, remarked, “The 18th forum underscored the importance of promoting inclusive practices to empower women in the energy sector. The FCW enabled us to develop our mutual effort to overcome the challenges that face women in the industry and will continue to strengthen bilateral strategic ties between the UAE and Japan; unlock women’s potential and help further their development.”

The forum also celebrated diversity and inclusion, promoting cross-sector collaboration to better understand and address challenges faced by women in the energy sector. The FCW aims to overcome barriers and create a more inclusive and diverse workforce by providing necessary platforms for cooperation and increased knowledge.

Yasser Al Mazrouie, ADNOC Executive Director of People, Commercial and Corporate Support, expressed gratitude, saying, “I would like to thank the FCW for their remarkable work in fostering cross-cultural dialogue, collaboration, and friendship between the two countries. At ADNOC, we are committed to empowering and enabling our female employees to reach their full potential and to play an active role in shaping the future of the energy sector.”

Since 2015, ADNOC and the JCCP have been organizing FCW forums in the UAE and Japan, underscoring the importance of women’s contributions across the energy industry.

Fatema Al Nuaimi, ADNOC Executive Vice President of Downstream Business Management, added, “Over the years, the FCW has been a great reflection of our robust partnership with Japan, a country that has been at the forefront of progress in the energy sector alongside us. The principles of efficiency and sustainability are not just operational buzzwords but deeply embedded in every facet of ADNOC’s organization. Together we are committed to forging a more sustainable, inclusive, and technologically advanced future.”

This renewed partnership continues to drive societal transformation and advance women’s roles and opportunities in the energy sector, emphasizing their impact and importance across various fields and broader society.
