In the West, the EMA region is perceived as exclusively dominated by males. However, there are successful female entrepreneurs and women in leading positions in Saudi Arabia or Libya, women who have acheived a distinguisehd status in their societies and who serve as a role model. Many of them face the same challenges as women in Germany, even though the environment in which they work is very different at times due to cultural differences. Togehther with you, we want to discuss the similarities, differences and the challenges that successful women face world-wide.
