Inspiration of the month: Marielle Khayat

Marielle has been in the innovation, design and entrepreneurship field for 7 years now. After her studies in Management, she left Lebanon and moved around China and the US  before settling in Paris. Throughout her travels, she stayed passionate about highlighting the good things happening in Lebanon. In 2012, she co-wrote Losing Touch, a book about the disappearing Lebanese trades, that depicted the lives of the trade workers of Beirut.

Koullouna is a box that features 6-7 local Lebanese artisans and producers under a specific theme each month. The […]

Panel Discussion: Successful Women, the Rule not an Exception

It seems that there are significant inequalities between men and women as active contributors to the economy and as business actors.

Roundtable with Ms. Shirin Ebadi, Nobel Peace Prize for democracy and human rights
