)-- The Women Presidents’ Organization (WPO) East Bay Chapter member Cecilia McCloy, president of Integrated Science Solutions, Inc. (ISSi), was a featured speaker and participant at the 2006 Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Businesswomen’s Summit Oct. 31 through Nov. 2 in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. The summit brought 250 women business leaders from the region together with women executives and women business owners from the United States to share solutions for challenges they face in business and help take business in the region to a new level. The event was sponsored by the Middle East Partnership Initiative of the U.S. State Department with support from the Abu Dhabi Businesswomen Council and the Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The WPO is a nonprofit membership organization for a diverse group of women presidents who have guided their businesses to at least $2 million in gross annual sales (or $1 million for a service-based business).
“I was honored to be asked to attend this event by the U.S. State Department and excited to meet fellow women entrepreneurs,” said McCloy. “This summit highlighted and supported businesswomen, and I was proud to share our accomplishments at ISSi as part of it.”
“Cecilia is an outstanding entrepreneur and excellent representative for this summit,” said Firestone. “She is a leader within her industry as well as a champion for women in business. We are confident that the insights she provided to participants will prove especially effective in their future business strategies.”
