The Emirates Airline Festival of Literature is back for 2021 with a phenomenal line-up...
Which includes some female writers you don’t want to miss.
With women leading only twenty-four Fortune 500 companies, female founders receiving only 2.2 percent of US venture capital, and the continued presence of sexual harassment and double standards, the gender gap continues to hinder the advancement of women in the professional world. Victoria Montgomery Brown is unusual, as a female Chief Executive in the world of technology.
In her book 'Digital Goddess', she shares valuable insights that can help others, as she unpacks her journey.
"Men are less afraid of being found out," she says, as she recommends that you never lie to your investors, even if you have just been arrested (a life lesson she doesn’t recommend repeating).
Audiences at this year's Emirates Airline Festival of Literature are in luck, as she puts it in her own words: "People want to be inspired by people who have done extraordinary things."
The Emirates Airline Festival of Literature is held with Founding Partners Emirates Airline and the Dubai Culture & Arts Authority (Dubai Culture), the Emirate’s dedicated authority for heritage, arts, and culture and under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai.
