EXECUTIVE DEAN, EDINBURGH BUSINESS SCHOOL, HERIOT-WATT UNIVERSITY
“As one of the small group of women who set up the 30% Club in 2010, I have always had a strong commitment to the advancement of women in the boardroom.

I applaud the Pathway20 initiative and urge everyone in the region to support it, as more women are encouraged to step forward and play their part in the continued economic development of the UAE.”
