Welcome to Al-Sahm Women

A professional networking group for women

Who We Are

We are a group of passionate professional women working in the MENA region. We believe that bringing Arab women together to network, share ideas, and explore opportunities to invest, donate, and engage in the community around them will create long-lasting relationships and a support system for women who often find themselves alone in their industries.

Al-Sahm Women features a team of dedicated women in every country ASW is present.  These women pull together productive networking events, inspiring startups and NGOs, and exhilarating social experiences to bring you the best experience a female influencer can ask for.  And most importantly, they can't wait to meet you.  Learn more about our membership pricing below!

What We Do

We are an organization built on success.  Our members have fought for their place in key industries across the MENA region, and now hold an impressive array of leadership positions in trade, finance, NGOs, and government.  We serve as a platform for these women to meet, discuss challenges they face, and build connections in and out of their industries.  We host private events, entertain pitches from promising female-run startups, and dedicate time and money to NGOs and women who are just starting out in their industries.

Our members adhere to a strict code of conduct that ensures that you can network without fear of being hassled for a job or money, and you can focus on building long term friendships and professional relationships.

Why You Need To Join

If you are a woman from Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, or the United Arab Emirates who has become a leader in your industry, you have the opportunity to tap into a community of female achievers.   Our events are carefully curated, with networking opportunities exclusively for female influencers, pitch events that feature only the most promising startups, and NGOs serving women and children in our communities.  We organize social events that support local restaurants and businesses and go on adventures that highlight the beauty of our region.  If you're not a member, you are missing out on a spectacular array of female relationships and experiences.
