Profiles of seven successful working women
For this month’s special report on women in the workforce, Executive chose to profile a selection of seven successful, upper managerial level, Lebanese working women. Some of these women work in the private sector, others are in the public sector, but for all the differences in their job titles and roles, they share some commonalities. They are all ambitious, hard working and were able to build up their careers despite the obstacles that most working women face. They were all raised in supportive families who fostered their ambitions, and they all now credit the family they have built, their husbands and children, and the motivation and support they offer, for helping them achieve this success. In these profiles, we ask them how they managed this balancing act, what drives them to succeed and what lessons they would give to the young women who are just entering the workforce.
