Event Overview

Historically, women have always played a prominent role in society and be decision-makers. Contrarily, the roles of women in the workforce have been negligent. As per the global statistics, only 6% of women are working in leadership positions and this number further dipped during the pandemic.

With this summit, we aim to bring together women who have not only achieved stupendous success but have also found a voice and a chair at the leadership table. We bring together great women achievers who will share their struggles, journey, stories, and success with other aspiring women.
This platform aims at highlighting the paradigm shift of the new-age leadership while paving the way for the next generation of women leaders. Let’s come together to celebrate this force and encourage women to continue breaking barriers.

Who can Attend This?

We recommend this conference for every aspiring women leader, who aims to reach their professional goals. This summit is for men who support women’s advancement and network with women, which helps diversify your network

A note from the MD’s Desk

Sabah Parvez

It gives me great pleasure to introduce the MENA Woman Leader’s Summit 2022. Personally, this is one of my most cherished summits of the year and one that I am personally invested in.

Women’s strength has been a reckoning force throughout my life. I was privileged to be around strong women, right from the comfort of my home to the challenges at the workplace, I had the opportunity to work with leaders who recognized the power within me. This was also one of the major driving factors to start Verve Management. Here at Verve we have always believed in gender diversity and are proud of our workforce.

With this summit, we want to take the opportunity to celebrate our strength and support other women to make this world a more beautiful place. Seeing women leaders in various sectors only makes me aspirational about the next chapter in this wonderful series.

I welcome you all to embark with us on this two-day enthralling summit that will help every aspiring woman to catapult her career to the next chapter. And finally “ Lets Aspire to Lead the way”

A note from the Conference Producer

Natasha Swamy

Welcome! It gives me great pleasure to introduce the Inaugural edition of the Middle East Women Leaders Summit 2022.

Women supporting women has always been empowering. We live in exciting times where our opportunities are boundless and not even the sky is our limit, we have other universes to explore.

We live in times where we are empowered by conversation and inclusion. Conversations about the caliber and not the gender of the person accomplishing the task. Conversations around Inclusion, being a part of the workforce, and the development of a nation.

We live in exciting times, where governments are encouraging women by creating councils such as inclusivity councils and various empowerment groups. Each day we see policies being developed to only strengthen our presence in the workforce, but also reinforce practically everything that we aim to achieve. So why not celebrate this breed of woman leaders and support each other to only accelerate higher.

With that, we welcome you all to the Middle East Women Leadership Summit 2022, an ecosystem for everyone to flourish together.
