Maria-Gabriele Doublesin has been awarded the Best Social & Business Care Award (Women helping Women) at the Businesswoman of the Year Awards held last Friday by Dynamic Events at the Intercontinetal Hotel, Saint Julian’s. Doublesin is founder and director of ICC -Intercultural Counselling & Competence Development Ltd, a training and management consultancy firm that specialises in guiding businesses in contexts of intercultural competence, people & culture management and diversity.
Upon receiving the award, Doublesin said “I dedicate this award to all women out there who are right now revamping themselves and their careers in the face of adversity: no matter what your life looks right now, reaffirm your conviction that you can succeed.”
Her company has, in fact, been rewarded for its work in re-engineering businesses even in the context of gender relations, with interculturality meaning different contexts which allow a workplace to have a competitive edge due through cross-sectoral leadership and team working skills.
Apart from her thriving management consultancy firm, Maria-Gabriele also finds time to lecture at the Malta Leadership Institute and to run NWAMI International, a voluntary NGO that works towards inclusion and community cohesion through cultural engagement.
