On the occasion of International Women's Day, Haifa Al Kaylani, EWI board member and chairman of the Arab International Women's Forum, has been recognized as one of the hundred most powerful women in the Arab World.

The "Power 100 list," which was published by Arabia Monitor, recognizes the world’s 100 most influential Arab women in business, science, media, entertainment, arts and sports.

Noting that she holds "senior roles in several organisations in the UK and internationally as well as seats on the boards of cultural and educational institutions and NGOs," the ranking affirmed that "her influence is widely accepted."

In a recent interview, Al Kaylani noted that "empowering Arab youth and supporting the role of Arab women leaders is the utmost priority if we are to achieve true and lasting peace and prosperity in the Arab world."
