Our second annual UAE Female Leaders Outlook again finds that female executives in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) are not only acutely aware of existing business challenges and shifting business priorities, but they also are prepared to tackle them head on.

The objective of the second KPMG Global Female Leaders Outlook (GFLO) is to provide insight into female leaders’ perspectives. The GFLO is closely based on the questionnaire used for the KPMG Global CEO Outlook, which was published by KPMG International in May 2019 for the fifth consecutive year. The vast majority (86%) of the 1,300 CEOs who took part in that survey were male leaders of large companies. Likewise, 94% of CEOs who participated in the UAE CEO Outlook were male.
