As Saudi women continue breaking all sorts of barriers, one more major accomplishment has been made.
A Saudi woman will now be representing the Kingdom at UNESCO
Princess Haifa Al-Mogrin joined the ranks after being appointed as the country’s permanent representative to the United Nations’ Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
The kingdom became a member of UNESCO’s Executive Council back in November
The University of London graduate has also previously worked with the United Nations Development Program. In 2013, she was promoted to become a UN program analyst focused on covering social development and human rights.
Prior to that, she was appointed as assistant deputy minister for sustainable development affairs in 2017 and served as the head of the sector in the country’s Ministry of Economy throughout 2016.
Congratulations to HH Princess Haifa Bint Abdulaziz Al-Mogrin on her appointment as Saudi Arabia’s permanent representative to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
