Beyond Beauty ’06: women empowerment workshop

Beyond Beauty is a 3-day residential women empowerment workshop organized by School of Leadership (SOL) who have to their credit the successful organization of Youth Leadership Conferences over the past years.

The promotion blurb says: “Beyond Beauty is a program where women develop their self-confidence, learn to manage their family, social and work related issues productively and meaningfully and experience achievement.”

Days: February 17 to 19, 2006.
Place: Beach Luxury Hotel, Karachi
Participants will have to stay in the hotel for the duration of the conference. Security at SOL conferences is always exceptional. At this time, registrations may be few. A tip: Employed women can check with their HR for any available reservations, as the SOL have strong corporate partnerships/sponsorships, or get last-minute sponsorships from employers.

Recommendation: Strong. SOL has a track record of well-organized conferences with great teaching sessions. There is always a chance to network. Carry your visiting card; if you don’t have one, your new friends will be happy with a computer-printer version. Just to keep in touch!

    was a member of teh first beyond beauty held between october 8th and 10th 2004 at sheraton. i have never felt more ashamed by women folk than i was then. it was so horrible seeing women adorably pitying themself and feeling so sorry about it all.

    there were few good sessions though. the entire session on marriage and islam, where the speaker enlightened us on how a woman is allowed to divorce a man in islam according to a marriage contract, and khula is a different concept altogether. and sex education was a wonderful topic, but again the mentality of women that were there could not digest the session.

    all in all, the effort was wonderful. but you need a certain calibre and demeanour to digest the effort. and sadly enough, the women around were terribly woeful, making the effort very pointless and a horrible experience.

    hey! everybody…sorry this post is NOT relevant to the topic, but im just wondering why none of the bloggers has started a thread on the whole cartoons controversy..??? i mean its only the entire planet thats talking about it!!
    and since its such a philosophical issue i think we’d see some really diverging opinions being voiced.

    what do you think?

    The beyond beauty logo is a complete rip off. Sad to see that a group of people can organize such a large event and end up copying the face of the event.
