About Rana Nawas:

Born in England to a Palestinian father and Lebanese mother, Rana grew up like many Western-educated Arabs facing the dichotomy of liberal and traditional values.

Rana’s education at Oxford University and Harvard Business School gave her a strong foundation to solve problems and negotiate effectively – a foundation which she used over her 17-year corporate career spanning McKinsey & Company’s London Office, the Dubai Government, and GE Capital. Over the course of her career, she led the charge in rewriting policies and helping women rise in their professional and personal lives.

She has spoken in front of diverse audiences on a variety of topics and has been labeled a “thought-provoking”, “fact-driven” and “inspiring” speaker. She also advises a number of multinational corporations on their gender diversity strategies.

Rana is the president of Ellevate Dubai, a chapter of the world’s oldest businesswomen’s network, Ellevate. Rana has been featured in the press, on TV, and on the radio. Her articles have been published in Forbes, Huffington Post, The Tempest, The National, Entrepreneur ME, and Thrive Global.
