WEE: Women in Energy & Environment in the MENA Region
Summary of Big Idea: 

WEE is a forward-looking organization focusing on women in energy and environment in the Middle East & North Africa. WEE is a member-driven organization in which diversity, innovation and creativity are valued and our members are our key resources. WEE is dedicated to supporting women in their current roles and building a supportive community for them. Through WEE, I will seek to advance the role of women in the MENA region in leading the green industry while demonstrating the positive environmental, social and economic impacts of women. We will work to enhance the skills of our women members with a view to promoting gender balance across all levels of the industry. By providing women with consistently high quality services, creative solutions, technical skills and future opportunities, WEE will empower women to become leaders in their organizations.
