Diving for Pearls

Gina P Nelson

The Diving for Pearls Podcast will feature women in the UAE and across the globe who are breaking ground in their industry, while transforming the cultural landscape. We have chosen to make links to the pearl diving tradition which was interwoven into Emirati culture more than 1,000 years ago. Additionally, as 2019 was declared the "Year of Tolerance" in the UAE, we have chosen to engage in dialogue with female thought leaders, innovators and visionaries from a diverse range of backgrounds. The women whom we will spotlight on this podcast, are in many ways analogous to “pearl divers”…women who have taken calculated risks to uncover and harvest “pearls of wisdom”- insights that have led them to illuminate their pathway and the pathway of others. Harnessed with the knowledge of these insights, these women have persevered with unwavering determination, sheer brilliance and grit. We invite you to listen in, take the plunge, reflect on the poignant stories of courage and resilience, while delving deeper into your own journey of self-discovery and exploration. "Pearls lie not on the seashore. If thou desires one, thou must dive for it".–Anonymous
