Young Arab Leaders and She is Arab are partnering to deliver a unique series of webinars with the theme being "Arab Women in Leadership." The objective is to shed light on amazing success stories of Arab women, while discussing strategic and timely topics of relevance to the region. The first session as part of this collaboration is about Arab women in family businesses.
Family businesses contribute an estimated 60% of the MENA region’s GDP, and in times of crises and pandemics, they play a major role in keeping the economy afloat. Some of the largest and long-standing family businesses in the MENA Region are recognising the talent and unique skillset that Arab women bring to the table. As a result, more women are being promoted into leadership roles.
