Life in Abu Dhabi
"The endeavors undertaken by women in the Emirates are important
and honorable endeavors that are worthy of esteem.”
Sheikh Zayed bin Sulatan al Nahyan
Welcome to Abu Dhabi! It is an extraordinary place to be an expat and we hope you come to love your time here as much as the women of AWN have.
Abu Dhabi is on the northeastern part of the Arabian Gulf / Peninsula. It is the capital, and the second most populous city in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). It is one of the most diverse and desirable destinations in the world. It is a modern, cosmopolitan city with broad boulevards, tall and often uniquely shaped buildings, beautiful beachfront walkways and abounding in busy malls and shops.
The women who tend to thrive here are those who embrace their Abu Dhabi experience with openness and curiosity.
AWN’s mission of facilitating contact, support and networking will help in your transition to expat life. We offer exploring trips, stimulating weekly activities, social and cultural outings as well as relevant community activities. But more importantly, AWN is an organization where you can form friendships with amazing women from around the world. We share adventures together, support and encourage one another, and just have fun.
