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!

We are in the business of promoting women and bringing women together


One of the biggest complaints we hear is that women go to conferences to network and build working relationships, and find themselves alone, as one woman among many men.  While many of us have been able to be successful even with this social dynamic in place, we offer another opportunity to find like-minded women with an impressive array of skills and backgrounds.
