Published on: 21st March, 2021
Dr. Charlotte Karam is a tenured Associate Professor at the Olayan School of Business (AUB), where she served as the Associate Dean of Programs and the Founding Director of the Center of Inclusive Business and Leadership for Women. She explains why she and her colleagues across disciplines at AUB have surveyed inclusive employment for women in 11 Arab countries, and what their KIP Index results reveal. She outlines why structural reforms are needed to promote dignified work for all, while we reclaim knowledge about our own societies and measure progress according to our indigenous benchmarks.
