The third edition of the Oman Woman of the Year Awards 2020, organised by Apex Media, has been unveiled to celebrate and salute women’s achievements in Oman in thirty different categories. The suspense over the winners had been much prolonged, the ultimate revelations brought forth a myriad of joyous smiles.
The awardees, representing a broad range of professions, from fashion and finance to service in uniform and the male-dominated oil and gas sector, were presented their awards by Laila Zakwani, Executive Director, Apex Media. The gala awards function which was scheduled to be held in March, had to be cancelled due to the unfavourable situation arising from COVID-19.
Accepting the awards, the winners recognised the support and encouragement they had received from family members, colleagues and employers, particularly for believing in them and encouraging them to realise their aspirations and dreams. ‘More power to women!’ was the common refrain at each presentation.
