Tell us about a woman that you admire or are inspired by (past or present).
I am inspired everyday by many women that surround me in my everyday life, although the woman who inspires me most is my mother Eltifat. Since I was a little girl, I saw her strength and courage to do and be different, despite the norms society has set. Love you mom!
Quote from a colleague:
“From my first meeting with Zahra, I knew she was someone who leads from her position and someday would be a very influential People Leader. I’ve been inspired by her being a co-chair for the Equity Committee."
