Leadership and the Emirati woman: breaking the glass ceiling in the Arabian Gulf

Kristin Augsburg, Isabell A Claus, Kasim Randeree

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

The role of Arab women is often perceived one-sided in Western countries. In fact this perception must be revised when looking at the achievements of women in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The booming economy - one of the fastest growing economies in the world - demands for a well educated society. A 2005 Forbes list of "Women to Watch in the Middle East" included two Emirati women. Telling the success stories of Emirati women in leadership positions will give exposure to the West and serve to counterpoint existing prejudices about the opportunities for women in the UAE.
