Amal Yahya Al-Moallimi has been recently appointed as the ambassador to Norway — making her the Kingdom’s second female ambassador.
Princess Reema bint Bandar was Saudi Arabia’s first woman to hold such a position when she was appointed as the Kingdom’s ambassador to the US.
Al-Moallimi took the oath of office in an online ceremony on Tuesday, along with several others before King Salman and in the presence of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
Al-Moallimi obtained a bachelor’s degree in the English language from Princess Nourah bint Abdulrahman University, Riyadh.
She then studied abroad, gaining a postgraduate degree in mass communication and media from the University of Denver in the US, as well as a fellowship from the Oxford Center for Islamic Studies in the UK.
Al-Moallimi began her career more than 23 years ago in education, training and social development.
She worked as a teacher for five years and as a mentor for eight. She also worked for one year in the Educational Training Department at the Ministry of Education.
She  worked as assistant secretary-general at the King Abdul Aziz Center for National Dialogue.
The ambassador also served as general manager of international cooperation and organizations at the Saudi Human Rights Commission (HRC).
Earlier, she told Arab News: “The Kingdom’s journey toward empowering women has taken wider and quicker strides and continues to open up new doors every day.”
