PaloAlto CEO tells employees to bring their kids to work

If Lebanon is going to re-invent itself, it should follow the lead of average westerners who still separate employed mothers from children. Instead it could benefit from the example of pioneers like the CEO of Palo Alto software, who arranged for her employees to bring their kids to work.

Lebanon could be inspired by unusual westerners like Palo Alto's CEO, but it doesn't need to do however is imitate the west blindly. As Zaha Hadid said, it's in the west that she faced discrimination as a woman architect, and she said that in the middle-east, while men treat women differently, they don't hate them nor do they patronize them. The west has a streak of male aggression that it has yet to face.
