  • “My goal is to educate women on financial literacy,” the Saudi diplomat said
  • “I truly believe that liberty for a woman comes from the ability to make the financial decisions for her life”

DUBAI: Financial literacy and self-sufficiency can empower women in many ways, Saudi Ambassador to the US, Princess Reema bint Bandar said in a video campaign by the Rockefeller Foundation.

“Today more and more women are entering the workplace, but they still don’t have the education to make the correct financial decisions for themselves,” she explained.

The princess was appearing in video released on Tuesday, as part of the Rockefeller’s “Solvable” campaign, involving experts and leaders from all around the world talk about a specific issue they are passionate about, and what they are doing to solve it.

She said that during her time in retail, many of her female employees would approach her about their financial issues, prompting her to realize that something had to be done “to give women access to the right tools and training” to overcome these problems.

“My goal is to educate women on financial literacy,” the Saudi diplomat said, talking about Alf Khair, a social enterprise she founded in 2013 to “educate, train, and develop the skills” of Saudis.

At the organization, they teach women how to be self-sufficient through workshops and seminars.

“I truly believe that liberty for a woman comes from the ability to make the financial decisions for her life,” she said.

Princess Reema is the Kingdom’s first female ambassador, and had been the vice president of women’s affairs at the General Sports Authority before her appointment. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in museum studies from George Washington University.

Career

Over the past decade, Reema has worked across the private, public, and philanthropic sectors.

Private sector

Reema returned to Saudi Arabia in 2005. She co-founded Yibreen, a women’s day gym and spa. She later assumed the role of CEO at Al Hama LLC, a luxury retail corporation. She served for several years as the CEO of Alfa International, a leading luxury retail corporation that, among other pursuits, operates the Harvey Nichols store in Riyadh.

As the CEO of Harvey Nichols in Riyadh, Reema led the inclusion of women into the retail sector, working closely with the Ministry of Labor to craft a smooth labor market entry. She set the example of workforce integration by creating the Kingdom’s first workplace nursery, enabling more women to work.

In 2013, Reema also founded Alf Khair, a social enterprise aimed at elevating the professional capital of Saudi women.

Since 2016, Reema has served as the Saudi General Sports Authority’s (GSA) Deputy of Planning and Development, where she has led diversity and inclusion (D&I), the development of the Kingdom’s sports economy, and strategic partnerships. In the very same year, she was appointed as vice president of women’s affairs at the General Sports Authority (GSA). In 2017, she held the position of the president of the Saudi Federation for Community Sports.

Among the first achievements under Reema’s mandate, is the inclusion of physical education for girls in schools.

Reema has noted publicly that engaging women as active participants in the working economy is “evolution, not Westernization,” and empowering a woman with financial responsibility will encourage her to “explore more of the world for herself and become less dependent.”She has also stated that Saudi Arabia “cannot have half of [the] population not working.”

At Harvey Nichols Riyadh, Reema was responsible for hiring more women and introducing services such as childcare available to employees with young children, providing an opportunity for mothers to continue working and also provide for their children during the workday. She also began a program at Harvey Nichols that provides transportation stipends to women because the Kingdom’s restrictions did not allow women to drive at that time, until September 2017 when the Saudi government decided to allow women to drive. These efforts, coupled with economic policies lowering the barriers for women to enter the workforce, have led to the store employing dozens of women today (as opposed to 2011, when only men worked there).

Philanthropic work

Reema Alf Khair, a corporate social responsibility initiative, whose work included an active and vocal community of creative talent in Saudi Arabia and promoted their work internationally. Alf Khair also developed a retail academy, which provided training for Saudi women joining the workforce.Her work in this realm also included her role as an Advisory Board Member of the Saudi National Creative Initiative.

Saudi Ambassador to US Princess Reema hailed as ‘inspiring figure’ for female empowerment

Time: March 08, 2019

  • The new ambassador to the US has been noted for her efforts in advocating for empowering Saudi women

DUBAI: Princess Reema bint Bandar bin Sultan made history last month, becoming the first Saudi woman to be made an ambassador.

After she was named Saudi Arabia’s top diplomat in the US, Ridwaan Jadwat, Australia’s ambassador to Saudi Arabia, called her appointment “an important milestone,” and wished her a happy and successful posting.

A recognized global figure, Princess Reema has spoken publicly about the inclusion of women in the Saudi workforce, describing the liberalization under way as “evolution, not Westernization.”

She has said, though, that the Kingdom’s efforts to allow women to drive or attend football games are only “quick wins.” More professional opportunities need to be created, and problems such as domestic violence, she believes, demand greater scrutiny.

Princess Reema spent several years in the US during her youth when her father, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, was also Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the country. She graduated with
a bachelor’s degree in museum studies from George Washington University.

After returning to the Kingdom in 2005, and spending time as the CEO of Harvey Nichols in Riyadh, the princess launched a handbag brand in 2013, before founding a private equity fund and a women’s day spa. She is a member of the World Bank’s Advisory Council for its Women Entrepreneurs Finance Initiative, is vice president of women’s affairs at the General Sports Authority, and is a founding member of the Zahra Breast Cancer Association in Riyadh. In August 2018 she was also appointed to the International Olympic Committee.

Speaking to Arab News last month, Dominique Mineur, Belgium’s ambassador to Riyadh, said the appointment of Princess Reema demonstrated the Kingdom’s resolve to give more prominent roles to women.

“Of course, she is an inspiring figure and has been supporting women in so many fields, such as sports, health, work and financial independence,” Mineur said. “It’s a logical appointment considering the role she has played.”

  • Top diplomats in the Kingdom welcomed the news of Princess Reema’s appointment as Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the US

RIYADH: The appointment of Princess Reema bint Bandar as Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the US has been welcomed by foreign diplomatic missions in the Kingdom.

Princess Reema made history last Saturday when she was appointed to the role, becoming the first Saudi woman to be named ambassador.

Top diplomats in the Kingdom welcomed the news.

“This is in line with Vision 2030, to give a more prominent role for women in Saudi society,” she told Arab News. “Of course, she’s an inspiring figure and has been supporting women in so many fields, such as sports, health, work and financial independence. It’s a logical appointment considering the role she has played. This will undoubtedly be a strong support for all women of all origins and backgrounds to become leaders in their own expertise. I can only hope that there will more who will take such prominent roles.”

The princess was vice president of women’s affairs at the General Sports Authority (GSA), a position she held since 2016. She was also named president of the Saudi Federation for Community Sports in 2017, and appointed to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in August 2018.

Simon Collis, the British ambassador to Saudi Arabia, recalled working closely with her on projects.

“I and many colleagues in the UK have enjoyed working with HRH Princess Reema bint Bandar in her current role, in which she has driven access to sports for women in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and we look forward to continuing this relationship in future,” he told Arab News. “I wish her every success.”

Ridwaan Jadwat, Australia’s ambassador to Saudi Arabia, wished the princess a happy and successful posting. “Mabruk/congratulations to HRH Princess Reema bint Bandar bin Sultan on her appointment as Saudi Arabia’s first female ambassador. It is an important milestone,” he told Arab News.

Princess Reema’s father was a former ambassador to the US, and she spent several years there when she was young. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in museum studies from George Washington University, and is a philanthropist and entrepreneur.

She has spoken about the inclusion of women in the Saudi workforce, describing reforms as “evolution, not Westernization,” and about the Kingdom’s efforts to tackle bigger issues than women being allowed to drive or attend football games, calling them “quick wins.”

Problems such as domestic violence demanded greater scrutiny, she told the Atlantic Council in Washington.
