Mariam Farag

Head of Corporate Social Responsibility at MBC Group

After working for the United Nations in several capacities from 1999, Mariam Farag took her experience to MBC in 2013 where she became “responsible for driving its corporate responsibility vision and strategy in the region and globally.”

Women entrepreneurship is a subject close to her heart and earlier this year, Mariam helped launch a competition called ‘Mashrou3 Amal’ which “focuses on rising women entrepreneurs submitting their business ideas or startups for extra support through capacity building, training, funding and media exposure.”

As to why it was important, she explains: “It had two purposes – to highlight successful stories of women in business and their resilient journey and to tell every mother, daughter and wife that she has a role to play in the region’s socioeconomic development and that she too can make a difference.” Mariam adds: “For me, this is not a job but rather a passion and a way of life.”
