Women in Leadership: Theory to Practice

Women in Leadership: Theory to Practice is a research-backed initiative, created with two goals in mind: first, to craft role models out of professional women residing in the Arab Gulf countries; and second, to provide a stepping stone for academics and students interested in the topic of leadership in the Middle East.

The website hopes to build a platform for women in the Gulf to share their stories of ambition and accomplishment through a series of face-to-face interviews. Their lives reveal recurrent themes across that invite exploration of the relationship between a woman’s culture and her professional occupation in the private and public Middle Eastern sectors.

Ultimately, WILTP plans to compile a public database of individual case studies chronicling the achievements of women across the Gulf– a first-of-its-kind living archive.
