Sara Al Shorouqi, 41, is one of the most senior Emirati female executives in one of the UAE’s biggest investment groups. In this episode she recalls how her father (a teacher and school director) and mother (an artist) played a crucial role in her building self-confidence and a successful career, while raising 4 children. Sara speaks about stereotypes affecting Emirati women in the workplace, and outside the UAE in general. She also explains how a divorce and medical issues changed the perspective.

A true feminist voice with an Emirati twist.
