On the occasion of International Women’s Day 2018, Ms. Randa Bdeir was awarded an Excellence Award from the Arab Women’s Council. The ceremony took place on March 2018 at Université Saint-Joseph de Beyrouth.
In her acceptance speech, Ms. Bdeir described any woman who has reached a high position in the business world in the Arab World as a hero.
For Ms. Bdeir, a journey begins with a woman’s self-confidence and her ability to face challenges that can help her break the glass ceiling imposed on her.
“Women are passionate leaders, energetic, confident, determined, and curious,” said Ms. Bdeir. “They love life and actively craft it to create happiness around them”.
