Under the patronage of H.E. Shaikh Mohamed bin Khalifa Al Khalifa, Minister of Oil, Kingdom of Bahrain and supported by NOGA, influential women in the energy industry launched the fourth edition of Leadership Excellence for Women Awards and Symposium (LEWAS). Under the Chairpersonship of Reem Al Ghanim, HR Leader, Saudi Aramco, the Awards Ceremony took place on 23rd October 2018 at the Four Seasons Hotel Bahrain Bay and the Symposium, on 25th October 2018 at the Bahrain International Exhibition & Convention Centre.
LEWAS began in 2013 with the objective to Empower, Engage and Elevate women. Since its inception, it has recognized and honored both men and women who are not only making a mark in the Energy industry but are also being an advocate for women empowerment in the GCC. LEWAS seeks to address the challenges and opportunities for women leaders in the Oil and Gas industry. Over the years, LEWAS has gathered women leaders and empowered and motivated women to engage in discussions and panels that address the issue. Currently, in its fourth year, LEWAS is the forerunner in the GCC to honor talented and influential women, address pressing issues, develop new and better opportunities and create long-lasting collaborations and partnerships across the industry and beyond.
