Each spring, Dubai Women’s College hosts Insight Dubai, an interactive conference that brings together sixty young women from around the world and pairs them up with Dubai Women's College students for five days of learning, sharing and growing together. Participants develop global awareness, intercultural understanding and leadership skills through working together in small groups, listening to expert guest speakers and panelists, going on field trips and taking part in role plays and other simulations. The issues explored vary from year to year and include topics as diverse as inheritance under Sharia law, Arabic governance, promoting peace, and combating human trafficking. Four Smith students attended the Insight Dubai conference in March 2011.
