Forbes Middle East shared a list of the region’s most influential women for 2018. The list comprises 100 businesswomen and female executives. Thirteen Lebanese women made the list!
“Today women in the Arab world have advanced in industries that were typically male dominated, breaking the proverbial glass ceiling. They lead companies in oil and gas while pioneering the next innovation in cryptocurrencies or fintech.”
These are the criteria that Forbes Middle East took into consideration while formulating the ranking:
• Revenues of the companies that they lead. • The role that they perform. • The amount of experience that they possess. • The growth of their firm.
