About the Symposium

About the Symposium

ENGAGE, Empower, and Elevate....


The LEWAS Symposium was created when a small 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.

Join us on October 11th as we unite, empower and elevate.


LEWAS Invites You To:

  • Spend an invigorating morning learning from women who have achieved great accomplishments
  • Have the opportunity to network with other women from the fields of oil & gas and beyond
  • Receive advice from well-regarded mentors
  • Explore the ways you can improve upon your personal leadership skills
  • Learn best practices used throughout the Oil and Gas Industry in the GCC


The inaugural LEWAS Symposium will run in conjunction with MEPEC on October 11, 2017 at the Bahrain International Convention Center.
