When Women Win is a podcast where female role models and boss ladies from around the world share their inspirational stories and practical tools and strategies they used to succeed. It is currently the number 1 most listened to podcast in the Middle East.


On each episode, host and creator Rana Nawas finds out the stories and deconstructs the tools and strategies of what is a remarkable lineup of boss ladies: Kristina Kuzmic, Afra Atiq, HRH Princess Tessy Antony, Dr. Auma Obama, and many more.

My two favorite quotes were:

  • “Who do you think you are, you’re just a drop in the ocean…”. Her reply: “what is the ocean but millions of drops?”
  • “Reading for fun is so important…. For the development of cognitive skills, for the imagination, for learning about other people, so that you’re more empathetic and better at communication”


You can find Rana at her website or on Twitter as @Prof_RanaDajani or @welovereading. And this is Rana’s book Five Scarves: Doing the Impossible - If We Can Reverse Cell Fate, Why Can't We Redefine Success?

A huge thank you to the 2020 Dubai Women’s Forum, where this episode was recorded.

The podcast I mentioned that outlines how everyone can support health workers during the COVID19 pandemic is this episode by Tim Ferriss.

Finally, the business I mentioned in Segment U is Qidz. Lots of ideas on how to amuse your children at home – only after you’ve done lots of reading… of course!
