Welcome to​ Center for Inclusive Business and Leadership (CIBL) for Women at the Suliman S. Olayan School of business (OSB) ​where we partner with employers, government agencies, and civil society organizations to develop and support the implementing of inclusive policies and practices. 

For too long, the burden of overcoming structural obstacles has been on the shoulder of women themselves. At CIBL for Women, we focus on decision-makers at the organizational and national level to lead the way for systemic change. 

We are scholar-activists, experts, and professionals who want to ensure women's dignified participation and representation at the departmental, organizational and national levels.
