Agents of Change: Arabs Reimagining the Future

Representing RISE Egypt, Mona Mowafi, will be speaking at the 'Agents of Change ' panel, which will take place Friday, November 11 between 2 - 3:15 pm.

About the Panel
The Arab world is facing many challenges across various sectors—from political stability to human capital development, job creation, inclusive economic growth, and diversification. Such challenges are hindering the development of many Arab countries, leaving millions of discouraged youth with little hope for their future. Despite these realities, there are some Arab men and women who are determined to turn regional obstacles and challenges into opportunities. These "agents of change” have created interventions and initiatives that have made a difference, not only to their communities but also globally. In doing so, they have helped to rectify the negative perceptions of the Arab world. Their stories showcase determination in shaping a brighter future for the region. They are a source of inspiration for younger generations and a reminder of the immense talent and potential the Arab World holds.
