Almost half of Gulf women – 49 per cent – feel they are at a disadvantage to men when it comes to climbing the corporate ladder, more than in any other region in the Middle East, a new survey has revealed.
The Women in the Workplace survey, released 12 August, by Bayt.com and YouGovSiraj, measured the perceptions, attitudes, experiences and satisfaction of women living in the Middle East – including citizens and expatriates – with regard to their workplace.
This important survey is reported and discussed by Vivian Salama in an article at this link:
