Empowering women leadership ADATA

This is a call for action and contribution to reshape the women leadership land escape in all walks of life.

Are you interested in empowering, supporting or practicing women leadership?

Please join the “As Devoted As Tenaciously Achievable” (ADATA) consortium.

We are here to publish your ADATA drawing the parallels story on leadership, this could be an event in your life , many events , or a full journey.

Minimum of 500 words (English , Arabic , French*)

You can use references of bibliography- or not – as long as copy rights are observed

It doesn’t matter from which walk of life you come you , attempting to lead brings about some challenges.

This is a gender neutral space for individuals to share their experiences in leadership.

Tapping into your contemplation or “Al Ta’ammol” التأمل capacity, drawing the parallels could be a fascinating journey. This guided contemplation exercise reflects a certain level of awareness that brings about our daily life frequently used scientific facts, observations, philosophical concepts into indicating ways in which two distinct things are similar. You will be surprised with the “ Aha! “ moments you will realize practicing the art of “drawing the parallels”.

You do not need to write an article like this LINK here and publish it at a medical journal, although I do encourage that you read this one if you have a low to moderate level of a scientific background.

Instead, let us look into our kitchen, yes, why not?

You know the saying “oil and water don’t mix”. Well,  if you slowly add some lemon juice and eggs yolk to some extra virgin olive oil then add a dash of salt and pepper, Walla! you have got yourself basic Mayonnaise!

What does that parallel with in your life? Sometimes you might think an action you are attempting might not be “compatible “with your goal, “I can’t! you say, it’s impossible you shrug” but guess what maybe if you “whisk slowly but tenaciously you might achieve your goal. Maybe if you do it the ADATA way, things might change! They do, I promise.

To help you out in the writeup, here is the framework we suggest

  1. Look into an emotionally charged issue/challenge/topic in your life.
  2. Ask yourself, how does that lesson/issue/conclusion relate to my daily life frequently used scientific facts, observations, philosophical concepts?
  3. Draw the parallel and identify references if needed
  4. Write up using the format
  • The lesson
  • The power in action
  • Tips/conclusion

How do I write?
Let’s put this into practice


Title: The Mayonnaise lesson- The power of slowing down.

Here you will write the narrative describing the process of making homemade Mayonnaise ….

  • The lesson:g. Despite the largely adopted misconception that slowing down negatively affects achieving your goals, sometimes we need to slowdown to achieve different outcomes.
  • The power in action:g. When I was at high school, I was eager to become the cheerleader, but I had scoliosis, I had to wait for 2 years to be ready to lead but during that time I was engaged in educating myself about leading …. etc.,
  • Tips/conclusion: write a personal conclusion or advice you wish to convey to the reader

What If I was still struggling with challenges at the early stages of leadership?

The narrative could stop at any stage , for example, if you are experiencing a road block that you want to share for consultation you would only be sharing the parallel between the road block , the challenge , the issue and someone else can co-write your story by offering advice , support or drawing personal parallels that might provide depth to your experience.
