The list is being published for the second successive year by CEO Middle East, and features Arab women from several sectors, including business, sports, science, arts, culture and media.

Anil Bhoyrul, Editorial Direrctor of ITP Executive, said: “This year’s list is a celebration of the growing influence of Arab women across all walks of life. It is a huge honour for us that Her Excellency Sheikha Lubna will attend the event to unveil the list – she topped last’s year’s list, and is a shining example of the outstanding work and achievements of so many Arab women across the globe.”

This year’s list is thought to include a record 38 new entries, and features Arab women residing in18 different countries.

Bhoyrul added: “Our researchers have been looking closely at work of Arab women throughout the world over the past year. While naturally countries like the UAE and Saudi Arabia feature heavily, this year’s list also includes Arab women working in countries like Switzerland and Holland. With so many new entries, there are also a lot of surprises on this year’s list.”

The full list is also being published in the March edition of CEO Middle East, and online on from Sunday March 4.
