About LEWAS
Now in its 10th edition, LEWAS 2024 engages, empowers, and elevates issues that are at the very heart of the energy industry. What makes LEWAS even more important is in addition to recognising women it also recognises male advocates and corporations who champion women in energy, enabling women to shatter stereotypes and support the industry to advance.
Theme:
Enabling the
Smart Work Revolution

In the search for innovation, we have created machines that can simulate, augment, and even outperform the human mind. AI, today is not only changing our world but also challenging our very ideas of intelligence and consciousness.


We are witnessing ‘Work-X’, a new era of creative entrepreneurship where from working remotely to collaborating across borders is the new normal. We have successfully improved geographical flexibility, reduced overheads, built transparent and trustworthy systems, and increased autonomy and empowerment.


However, cultivating a culture of innovation goes beyond technology; it involves empowering employees to be proactive problem solvers and contributing to the organization’s overall growth and success.


It’s time to say goodbye to the traditional 9-to-5 routine. At LEWAS we are here to explore greater flexibility, creativity, and collaboration.

At LEWAS 2024, we want to explore the marriage between technology, and innovation fuelled by diversity to enhance business success.
