It was exciting to see #FIGTMember and Tandem Nomads founder, Amel Derragui, featured in the South Korean Magazine “Weekly Woman” alongside some powerful Korean women entrepreneurs. In the article, Amel describes the career challenges for expat spouses and acknowledges the crucial role these spouses are for assignment success. As the numbers of Korean expats increase around the world this will be a growing area of interest.
