NEW YORK— Following through on its mission to support and celebrate the success of the global creative community, The One Club for Creativity has established The One Club for Creativity-Cairo as its first international chapter.
President of the new chapter is Enas Rashwan, who also serves as president of Cairo Ad School and a creative director for more than a decade. The new authorized chapter (https://www.oneclub.org/chapters/-cairo/-page/about) will offer creatives in Egypt an unparalleled array of programming across creative disciplines, with all initiatives falling under four key pillars: Education, Inclusion & Diversity, Professional Development and Gender Equality.
“Putting Egypt on the global creative map has long been my aim, and the existence of The One Club in Egypt is a dream came true for me,” said Rashwan. “Our country has always been the hub of creativity in the Middle East, and we have many great creatives who are known across the region. With The One Club-Cairo, we’ll now be able to connect our creatives to the global community.”
“No other organization gives back to the advertising and design industries with the level of comprehensive educational and development programming on a global basis as The One Club for Creativity,” said Kevin Swanepoel, CEO of the organization, headquartered in New York. “Cairo has long been a creative leader in the region, and we are thrilled to work with Enas and her team as they have become our first International chapter.”
Rashwan has firsthand experience in all The One Club for Creativity has to offer from her time in the U.S., where her career path was guided by participation in The One Show and Young Guns awards shows and attendance at various educational and professional development events hosted by the club.
“The One Club for Creativity-Cairo is a great opportunity for local creatives, students, faculties and clients to shine, grow and become part of the global community, all of which will makes us stronger and better,” she added. “I am so proud to be part of this highly regarded organization and ready to serve the chapter with heart and soul.”
