Leading Women Wednesday 25 February 2015 5:30PM | CNN International (401)
CNN’s Leading Women meets women at the top of their field, exploring their careers, lives and ideas.
This month, the show profiles Arundhati Bhattacharya, the Chairperson for the State Bank of India, and Ann Cairns, who is the president of International Markets for MasterCard Worldwide.
Arundhati Bhattacharya is the first female chairperson of the subcontinent’s largest lender and was named the 36th most powerful woman in the world by Forbes.
Bhattacharya talks to Leading Women about how, in 2006, she saw herself at a crossroads as she decided to leave her job and her promising career to ensure a better quality of education for her daughter. But it was her mentor and a former bank chairman Mr. MS Verma who told her “not to give it up”.
Leading Women also profiles Ann Cairns, who is the president of International Markets for MasterCard Worldwide.
Cairns has had many types of careers – before her time at MasterCard Worldwide, she started her career as a research scientist, and even spent time in offshore engineering.
In the late 1980s she moved into banking, then into restructuring before joining MasterCard in 2011 as the head of international business. Cairns’ job involves around 60% of the company’s revenue and covers all countries outside the US.

Once Upon A Time In Punchbowl Friday 27 February 2015 8:00PM GMT | Al Jazeera (406)
Following the cafe hostage siege of 15 December 2014, negative media attention in Australia has once again focused on Arab communities raising questions about integration and religious extremism.
This series is the inside story of Lebanese Australians living in an area of Sydney called “Punchbowl”, and the challenges they face, but it is also about a wider story of Arab immigration to the West.
In this episode, Once Upon A Time In Punchbowl looks at the period between 1975 and 1996.
The Lebanese Civil War forced around 30,000 Muslims and Christians to flee their homeland and join an exodus to Australia.
Through the eyes of many of those first and second generation immigrants the episode sets the scene, showing how growing up in Sydney went hand in hand with experiencing violent racism.
When the first Gulf War whipped up anti-Arab sentiment many Lebanese felt they were not respected. A disenfranchised section of the community turns to drugs and guns inviting further criticism from police and politicians.
Tune in to Al Jazeera on 27 February at 8:00PM for Once Upon A Time In Punchbowl.
You can watch the rebroadcast of the first episode on the following dates:
28 February at 12:00PM
