LEWAS began in 2013 with the objective to Engage, Empower and Elevate women in energy. Since its inception, it has recognized and honoured women who are not only making a mark but are also being an advocate for women empowerment in the Middle East. The platform celebrates women who have consistently pushed boundaries having shown excellence by producing tangible and path-breaking leadership traits, raised the bar for gender diversity, and finding new avenues to address inclusion issues.
Now in its sixth edition, LEWAS 2020 engages, empowers and elevates issues that are at the very heart of the energy industry. What makes LEWAS even more important is in addition to recognizing women it also recognizes male advocates and corporations who champion women in energy, enabling women to shatter stereotypes and support the industry to advance.
