AMMAN – Nadia Rawabdeh, director general of the Social Security Corporation (SSC), ranked fourth in a recently launched list of the most influential Arab women in the government sector.
Compiled by Forbes Middle East, the list covered 30 Arab women in the government field, according to an SSC statement e-mailed to The Jordan Times on Sunday.
The website of Forbes Middle East, which also launched a list of the most influential Arab women in family business, said the criteria to determine the rankings included collating and analysing information sourced from official government and company websites, along with Forbes’ own resources and relevant data pertaining to women in high-profile business and government roles.
Rawabdeh came fourth after the UAE’s Amina Al Rustamani, group CEO of TECOM Investments.
UAE Minister of Foreign Trade Sheikha Lubna Al Qasimi topped the list, while her compatriot Salma Hareb, CEO of JAFZA and Economic Zones World, was second.
Rawabdeh was appointed SSC director in August 2012 and prior to the appointment she held several posts in the corporation over 25 years of service.
These include head of the insurance rights department, president of the investment portfolio department, director of the retirement and compensations department and director of the quality and risk analysis department.
