In a research piece conducted by the Wilson Center earlier this year, it was found that “the gap in ownership of established businesses between men and women in MENA is more than 40% - the largest worldwide”. Of course, there are several initiatives to try and close this gap, but ultimately, will they be successful? In today’s podcast, we ask Baroness Karren Brady CBE about the issues that exist because of this gap, what can be done to greater empower women founders in the MENA region, and ultimately, through what means can the region reach greater parity between men and women founders and business owners, especially in technology.
