About the Symposium

Empower, Engage, and Elevate

The LEWAS Symposium was created when a group of women decided there needed to be a forum in the GCC that provided a place to: celebrate women’s achievements, learn from well-respected women, have an opportunity to network, and improve upon knowledge.

The 2017 Symposium

Focusing on the challenges and opportunities for women leaders in the Oil & Gas industry, the inaugural LEWA Symposium was an unparalleled gathering of the GCC’s best and brightest female talent. During the event, women and men professionals came together to hear from an exceptional line-up of speakers who are pioneers in the field. We highlighted on what worked and failed – and why – so participants could gather insight on what to expect when they faced a similar problem.
