Angeli Arora, Corporate Partner at Mishcon de Reya, has been interviewed in a Citi GPS report on women entrepreneurs.
The report, entitled “Women Entrepreneurs: Catalyzing Growth, Innovation, and Equality,” features literature reviews, case studies, and interviews with subject matter experts and women entrepreneurs, and advocates the economic case for supporting women to start and grow businesses.
Angeli’s interview brings attention to gender equality barriers in the global workplace, including from the perspective of developed and emerging markets. “Many barriers for women entrepreneurs stem from harmful behaviours and attitudes towards women more generally in society,” Angeli comments, “which amongst other things create an unlevel playing field for them in business.”
Angeli also discusses the legal barriers that women entrepreneurs face around the world, how to better support gender-smart investments across different regions and her experiences as a woman working in private equity .
