Mae Saleh Al Mozaini
Chairperson

Mae Saleh Al Mozaini is the Founder & CEO of nusf; The Arab Institute for Women’s Empowerment. With an illustrious corporate career spanning nearly three decades in one of the world’s most respected and most significant companies, Saudi Aramco, Mae is also an International Coaching Federation (ICF) Certified Coach.

She is passionate about women’s development and is on several advisory boards for women’s empowerment, diversity and inclusion, as well as an active participant in many women’s advocacy programs.

As one of a handful of senior female leaders in Saudi Aramco, Mae is a pioneer—meaning there were very few female role models to look up to or who could provide mentorship throughout her career. And while her male supervisors were exceptionally supportive and played a significant role in her professional growth, her challenges were different than those of her male counterparts and were seldom addressed. As a result of her experience, Mae has made it her mission to support professional women through coaching, mentoring and training. 

Beyond her career and work for nusf, Mae identifies herself as a wife, mother, grandmother, and a lifelong learner.
