We Lead : Five Women who Drove Company Success in the Middle East and North Africa and How Good Corporate Governance Helped (Inglês)

There are no simple fixes to the issues confronting many of the countries in the Middle East and North Africa. But one thing is abundantly clear - the region’s economies will benefit from encouraging more women to ascend through the career ranks and achieve positions of leadership. This report presents inspirational stories of five women, who against all odds have succeeded as business leaders in a region that consistently lags behind for women’s economic participation. Their companies are the better for their leadership, as they delivered strong results and bottom-line benefits. Together, these women send a powerful message - of empowerment, capability, intelligence, toughness, and self-confidence. Through their leadership, their organizations embraced stronger business fundamentals such as good corporate governance, ultimately achieving better performance and increased stability, even in times of political and economic turmoil.
