Every day at MS is a celebration of women. We celebrate our incredible women all day every day, but sometimes it’s nice to reflect on the incredible adventure that has so far been and plan for the extraordinary journey that will be ahead of us while embracing all women who are our heroes.
This Women’s Week at MS is all about honoring and celebrating women who have inspired the “women at MS” that there are no dreams too big to chase. Women who have built their careers by sheer perseverance and talent, working day after day to build their careers and ventures.
Women in the UAE are at the forefront of breaking ceilings to set new standards as women around the globe continue to ascend unimaginable paths. Our MS Women meet such women every day, among whom are talented clients who are very effective at turning ideas into reality.
We decided to do something to help celebrate the talented and vibrant women entrepreneurs in our region, so we launched “WomenWhoHustle” at MS.
Having such wonderful women around us has a positive impact on our mindset and inspires us to put our hustle-hats on and go 100% to make our dreams come true. The #WomenWhoHustle make us want to hustle every single day.

A little surprise that was followed by pouring wishes and insightful conversations, sharing stories of inspiration and discussing how men could be our true allies in fixing many challenges women currently encounter. We exchanged ideas and hope for the future ahead that will see more women reaching heights and taking humanity to the best form.
