Entrepreneurship

For the advancement of women in STEM and in business

Founding a social enterprise and leading an entrepreneurship programme

I was the first to get a PhD in astrophysics from a Lebanese university. I want to make sure that I'm not the last. So in 2018 I founded She Speaks Science, to challenge the narrative of who does STEM and highlight women scientists. Today, She Speaks Science has grown into a global enterprise. Our storytellers write about their STEM research in the monthly publication, Scheherazade, offered in five languages and we run fun and engaging storytelling workshops at schools.

I'm committed to the advancement of not only women in STEM but also women in business.

At Cambridge Judge Business School Entrepreneurship Centre I designed, launched and now lead EnterpriseWOMEN, a programme informed by research and human experience to help enterprising women grow their businesses. Within a few months of its launch, it grew into a movement championed by seasoned and aspiring entrepreneurs, VIP supporters and contributors of the highest calibre.
