RTA sponsors Happiness Journey and High Five events in support of International Day of Happiness

DUBAI, — The Roads and Transport Authority, RTA, will run a host of diverse activities and sponsorships in support of the International Day of Happiness, coinciding with the launch of the fourth edition of Happiness Week from 19th to 25th March.

The move is part of the RTA’s efforts to turn the happiness concept into a reality through everyday practices.

The RTA also supports the Rove Hotels’ “High Five” initiative, which started in metro stations on 16th March and will continue till 20th March.

The aim is to simply spread happiness as well as to encourage and foster a positive atmosphere on the metro.

Highlighting these events, Ahmed Mahboub, Executive Director of Customer Service, Corporate Administrative Support Services Sector at the RTA, said, “The Happiness Week comprises an array of quality events highlighted by RTA’s sponsorship of the Happiness Journey event held by the National Programme for Happiness & Positivity.”

The journey will kick off at the Dubai Water Canal in the direction of Box Park on Al Wasl Road and return to the starting point. During the event, which is part of celebrations of the International Day of Happiness, the RTA will provide facilities to boost the event out of its social responsibility towards community events.

“The RTA also supports ‘High Five’ event held in conjunction with Rove Hotel, where hotel staff will be deployed in three metro stations: Burj Khalifa-Dubai Mall, Oud Metha and Deira City Centre. The event aims to bring smile and happiness to metro riders through symbolising their hands with High Five emoji, and associating them with station users to foster a cheerful atmosphere in the three stations,” Mahboub continued.

“The Happiness Week will also include Tastahal event, where several organisations, departments, teams, individuals and service centres who have shown high efficiency in delivering their tasks of bringing happiness to people, will be honoured, besides honouring the best service. A special customers’ council session will be held to mark the occasion to heed to the views and suggestions of RTA’s clients to keep pace with their ambitions and the happiness level they anticipate,” the Executive Director of Customer Service added.

UAE committed to supporting UN Women’s gender equality efforts

NEW YORK, — The United Arab Emirates has renewed its commitment to supporting UN Women, the global entity for gender equality and the empowerment of women, through its membership of the UN Women’s Executive Board and by hosting the entity’s liaison office in Abu Dhabi.

In a statement before the United Nations’ 61st session of the ‘Commission on the Status of Women,’ CSW61, in New York, Mona Al Marri, Vice President of the UAE Gender Balance Council, affirmed the UAE’s keenness to work with relevant global entities to empower women and enhance gender balance. She added that the country placed women empowerment among the key areas for achieving foreign aid policy for 2017-2021.

She also said the UAE government had successfully closed the gender gap in education � the literacy rate of women in the UAE is 95.8 percent and women account for 70 percent of university enrolment.

She noted that women currently represent 46.4 percent of the UAE’s total workforce, occupying 66 percent of public sector jobs, including 30 percent of decision-making jobs. The country, she continued, has 23,000 businesswomen, running projects at a total value of US$15 billion.

The CSW, established in 1946, is a functional commission of the United Nations Economic and Social Council, which specialises in creating global policies on gender balance and strengthening the role of women through the development of recommendations and reports for the Economic and Social Council, ECOSOC, on women’s empowerment.
