DUBAI, 13 février 2022 – Le maintien des femmes à l’université est essentiel pour que les entreprises augmentent leurs résultats et que les pays développent leurs économies, selon « Good Feminism and Global Leadership », un événement du Festival de littérature des Emirats qui s’est tenu dimanche à l’amphithéâtre du millénaire de Dubaï de l’Expo 2020 ( 13 février).
Moderator Ahlam Bolooki, Director of the Emirates Festival of Literature, opened the talk by asking panellists Her Excellency Reem Al Hashimy, UAE Minister of State for International Cooperation and Director General, Expo 2020 Dubai, and Indra Nooyi, former CEO and Chairman of PepsiCo, about the moments in their youth that planted the seeds for their achievement. Both credited their families and teachers for providing strong support and encouragement.
Nooyi said: “I was lucky to be born into an educated family and my father and grandfather insisted the girls received the same education and opportunities as the boys. I went to school, I joined a rock band, I played cricket – I was really able to test the limits of what women could do in India.” LINK TO ARTICLE
