LOUISE KARIM

Managing Director

I move at 100 miles an hour, be it work, family or hobbies, I actually make my husband dizzy! Always keen to take on a new challenge and believe there is no such word as can’t.

After 17 years in local and international communication roles and two children later I took the leap to build the first consultancy in the region dedicated to women and supporting their career progression from starting out, returning after career breaks and rising to senior management.

I’m driven to change perceptions and educate organisations that gender equality is not only the right thing to do, but it also makes business sense. For example just because you have children it doesn’t change your DNA or your ability to have a successful career, in fact we all know if you want something done you should give it to a busy person – who better than a working mum!

There are so many talented women in the region and I am delighted they now have a dedicated career platform and community with Women@Work to support them to thrive in their careers.

Women@Work (formally Mums@Work) has supported 1000’s of women in the first 3 years of business and I am excited to see how far we will go to create a level playing field in the workplace for women.
