For Women’s History Month, The Arab-American Business and Professional Association wanted to do more than simply reiterate our organization’s commitment to uplifting women in the community; we wanted to honor a cohort of trailblazing and successful women who are leading the way in working with young women entrepreneurs and community leaders to help them achieve their professional goals.
ABPA is proud to introduce the emPOWER 10, a group of talented and inspiring Arab-American women at the top of their respective fields. Selected by an all women panel of ABPA board members, they serve as role models and mentors for young women in business, education, philanthropy, medicine, and political activism. All of them have overcome numerous obstacles to rise to the top of fields where representation of Arab-Americans, and Arab-American women, is either too low or entirely non-existent.
The emPOWER 10 list dovetails with ABPA’s emPOWER grant program, which will provide financial resources to young Arab-American women starting businesses and community organizations.
