A Message from CIBL for Women's Co-Founders
The Center for Inclusive Business and Leadership (CIBL) for Women is a multidisciplinary and multisector team of researchers and practitioners dedicated to inclusive workplace practices and policies for women's economic participation across the Arab Middle East and North Africa (MENA). We work with a transnational network of businesses, CSOs, INGOs, experts, academics, and activists working in and across the Arab MENA.
Founded in 2019 but building on decades of activist-scholarship, CIBL for Women partners with decision-makers and employers in the public, private and nonprofit sectors to create inclusive and empowering HR systems. Our mission is to give women's work experiences greater value and influence in the design of programs, initiatives and policies that affect their lives, careers and wellbeing.
In partnership with our team and international network, CIBL for Women is a catalyst for structural change. Building on extensive regional research, practices, and analysis, we co-design effective change initiatives, build the capacity of decision makers, and mobilize collectively to overcome the multitude of barriers to women's dignified recruitment, retention, and promotion.
Founding Director Dr. Charlotte Karam and Co-Founders Dr. Fida Afiouni, Dr. Carmen Geha, Dr. Lama Moussawi, Dr. Wassim Dbouk
