AIWF Chairman recognised in Cranfield University's Women to Watch 2019

July 15, 2019




The Arab International Women's Forum congratulates Haifa Fahoum Al Kaylani, Founder & Chairman of AIWF, on her recognition in the Women to Watch 2019 supplement of Cranfield University launched alongside the Female FTSE Board Report, an annual analysis of women on boards produced annually by Cranfield University's School of Management.

As the UK's only exclusively postgraduate university, Cranfield University's world-class expertise, large- scale facilities and unrivalled industry partnerships are creating leaders in technology and management globally, unlocking the potential of people and organisations by partnering with business and governments to deliver transformational research, postgraduate education and professional development.

This year, Cranfield University has spotlighted 50 leading female professionals who come from backgrounds that have been previously underrepresented in the senior leadership pipeline. The 2019 edition showcases the talent and senior-level experience women with diverse ethnic heritage offer and prompts wider attention on the composition of boardrooms so companies go 'beyond the numbers' to push diversity in every sense.

Women to Watch was introduced by Cranfield University's Gender, Leadership and Inclusion Centre in 2009, and was this year compiled with the support of the Black British Business Awards and the Network of Networks BAME – Multicultural Chapter (TNON). Diane Greenidge, Founder of TNON, said: "These inspiring women, already leaders in their respective fields, have the potential to bring the power of greater diversity to UK boardrooms. We join Cranfield University in urging businesses to realise the positive impact that women from a broader range of backgrounds can have on their success."
