FEMALE scientists in the Middle East are being given a helping hand by two experts from the University of Portsmouth.

Dr Liza Howe-Walsh and Dr Sarah Turnbull, from the university’s Business School, have won funding to run workshops which could help revolutionise women’s career paths.

They will include psychometric diagnostic assessments to reveal whether barriers women might have to becoming leaders exist in their minds or personality, in their skills, or in another area. The workshops will also include one-to-one sessions.
