We are excited to host Samar Alshorafa: an entrepreneur and mother of 3 with a passion for social impact, diversity & inclusion, gender equality, policy reform, education and knowledge development
Samar is the Co-founder and CEO of She is Arab, the first dedicated online platform for Arab women with the aim to address their underrepresentation in business leadership and public speaking roles
Prior to starting her business, Samar spent over 15 years working in the field of international development and management consulting with organizations such as IFC -World Bank Group, the European Commission’s Industrial Modernization Program for Egypt, the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation and EFE – Education for Employment.
Her work entailed a lot of travel across the Mena Region and exposed her to topics from policy reform, to education, youth employment and gender issues. The learnings and challenges experienced through this diverse spectrum of projects helped paving the way to Samar’s social entrepreneurship journey
So, let’s join Samar and let’s find out more about the powerful network she’s building with She is Arab to help reversing stereotypes about Arab women and advancing gender equality using the power of digital communication.
