DUBAI, United Arab Emirates--(BUSINESS WIRE)--With support from the European Commission and Milan Expo 2015, The IAIR magazine has awarded Nashwa Al Ruwaini, CEO of Pyramedia, the prestigious title of most powerful woman in the world. A huge ceremony was held on November 20th in Dubai to honor some of the most influential figures in economic and banking institutions worldwide.
Guido Giommi, President of IAIR Group, noted that Al Ruwaini heads one of the largest media production companies in the Middle East. Her charisma has made her one the most influential people in the Arab World. Through her many major media and cultural projects, she has been able to offer new and original content throughout many Arabic channels. Her efforts have altered the social fabric and swerved public opinion in the direction of women’s rights.
On this momentous occasion, Nashwa Al Ruwaini, CEO of Pyramedia, expressed her delight in this award, which, in her own words, “embodies the attention of media and its developmental role in the advancement of women”. She elaborated that “in the past few decades we have witnessed an increasing acknowledgement of the role Arab women aspire to attain in society, especially in light of global efforts such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights aiming to end discrimination against women and ensure her joint cooperation with men in development processes of all kinds.”
Pyramedia CEO added that all countries of the world agree that women’s standing in community, political, economic, cultural, and social arenas is on an upswing. Women’s involvement in decision-making is an indicator of societal development; therefore, the issue of women is an essential cog in the wheel of social change and comprehensive development aiming to build a free and balanced democratic society.
Al Ruwaini dedicated this award to the soul of the late Mohammad Khalaf Al-Mazrouei, Advisor of Culture and Heritage at the Diwan of the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, who passed away on the thirteenth of this month. He was exemplary in giving support to women in the UAE.
