ABOUT lewas

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.

#LEWAS2020 Virtual Awards and Symposium will take place on the 27th - 29th October 2020 and #LEWAS2021 will take place on the 14th - 16th September 2021 in the Kingdom of Bahrain alongside GDA Conference.
