International Woman's Day Excellence Award

Eleven women in Dubai were honoured at the 11th International Women's Day Excellence Awards held on 8th March, 2012 at Holiday Inn, Dubai. The award ceremony recognised a range of talent in the community, placing women from different cultural backgrounds and fields in the limelight.

"The goal is to applaud the woman who does something that benefits the community — the scale doesn't matter. Neither does her position. It isn't a competition. Each woman is an achiever in her own right”. This is the vision of the managing director of Dhwani Group of Companies and Dhwani School of Arts and Cultural Institute who founded and organized this event. Being the only event of this kind in the GCC, the event has earned the recognition and endorsement of the United Nations. The event was sponsored by Bank of Baroda, NMC and was held under the patronage of Lion’s Club of TVM, Dubai

Mrs. Lalitha Suresh, Principal of GEMS Our Own Indian School, Dubai and a GEMS employee for 23 years was nominated for her selfless and exemplary contribution to the field of education for nearly 27 years. Her passion for teaching and learning, making learning real and developing a sense of learning community in the school was recognized by the organizing committee. Mrs Suresh was a deserving recipient of this prestigious award. We are proud that her long years of dedicated service in the field of education in the UAE has been recognized and honoured. Surely this will be a great inspiration to many leaders, staff and students in the GEMS Group.
