To celebrate this day, our committee members have prepared some inspirational messages for the WiFB community: 

Ana Maria Matallana, co-founding member of WiFB and President of her family’s foundation, Fundación la Cayena, talks about the critical role women play in ensuring cohesion and continuity both at home and at work. She highlights the necessity of educating all family members, not just shareholders, on key business decisions.

Architect and family business professional Dania Besher speaks of the importance of emotional intelligence underlining the ability of women to inspire others through their vision, stamina and resiliency.

Rania Labaki, Director of the EDHEC Family Business Centre, eloquently references the exclusive capability of women to excel equally as family members and professionals.

Happy International Women’s Day!
