Dr. Salwa Al-Nuaimi

Dr. Salwa Al-Nuaimi was born and raised in the U.A.E during the sudden development of the nation. This led to her passion in trying to create a harmony between the three generations who played a key role in this transformation of UAE. Dr. Al-Nuaimi was the first Emirati woman to be granted a scholarship by ADNOC to obtain a doctorate, and thus became the first Emirati woman to lecture at the Petroleum Institute in Abu Dhabi. The book is based on Dr Al-Nuaimi’s 2004 PhD thesis. She then rose across several government positions until she reached the position of Executive Vice President of Etihad Airways, and here, too, she was the first Emirati woman to obtain this distinguished position. Dr Salwa currently is a faculty adjunct at Zayed University, Dubai, teaching different disciplines in business. Dr Al-Nuaimi is a proud Emirati mother of three passionate and ambitious children who strive to follow in their mother’s footsteps.
