Forbes Middle East, renowned for recognising influential leaders and entrepreneurs, has announced its leading annual list of the most powerful businesswomen in the region for 2024, ranking the female leaders championing business success in the Middle East.
The list was constructed based on the size of the business, the individual’s impact, achievements and performance over the last year, and the scope of CSR and other initiatives led by the person.
Many of the businesswomen on this year’s ranking are placing significant importance on education and empowerment initiatives.
