Munera Al-Dosari Nominated as Potential C-suite Leader in EMEA Region

Doha, Qatar
Munera Al-Dosari, Chief Strategy Officer (CSO) of Ooredoo Qatar, today joins an exclusive group of women shortlisted for the prestigious WeQual EMEA 2020 Awards.
The Ooredoo CSO is one of just 24 world-class female executives nominated for the shortlist in the WeQual EMEA awards, which recognise and celebrate potential C-suite leaders. The nomination is based on the WeQual organisers finding successful senior women who are one level below C-suite. Each of the 24 finalists was assessed against seven criteria: Leadership, Cognitive Ability, Integrity, Drive & Resilience, Equality, Knowledge of the Business and Personal Development.
Sabah Rabiah Al-Kuwari – Director PR at Ooredoo – said: “Congratulations to my colleague and CSO Munera Al-Dosari on being named as a finalist for WeQual EMEA 2020. This is a tremendous achievement, and we welcome the way her existing industry recognition and reputation is beginning to reach a global audience.”
Munera Al-Dosari – Ooredoo Qatar CSO – said: “I am proud to be shortlisted for one of these awards, among the first to target women at this level. As well as connecting me to like-minded female executives, it builds awareness of both Ooredoo and of this group of talented people from across the business world.”
The WeQual Awards were founded by CEO Katie Litchfield in order to augment representation of women in leadership roles within the world’s biggest businesses, in response to her perception of a lack of diversity and equality in such roles and organisations.
Al-Dosari joins a senior group of 24 executives who will become members of the WeQual Club, alongside an existing cohort of 72 senior FTSE and Fortune 500 female executives. A quarter of the winners of previous UK and US WeQual Awards have since been promoted to the executive committees of FTSE and Fortune 500 companies.
After the assessment of all candidates, eight executive interviewers will hold 30-minute interviews with the three finalists in their category before each choosing a category winner.
The winners will be announced in December 2020.
