After watching her native Yemen collapse from successive violent conflicts, Suad Alamrani knew she had to follow her passion for peace. She believes in Ghandi’s saying, “Be the change you want to see in the world,” and began by changing herself, before changing what was around her. Despite years of studies in pharmaceuticals and management, Alamrani moved to study what would help her bring peace and justice to the region: anti-corruption, facilitation, conflict resolution, and governance. Ms. Alamrani continues to strive for more knowledge and experience. By advocating for sustainable peace, she hopes to prevent further violent crises in Yemen, and have a positive impact on her home country.
Currently Ms. Alamrani works as a technical support and international cooperation manager at the Yemeni national dialogue conference secretariat. She is also a member of the United States Institute of Peace Regional Facilitators Forum. Previously Ms. Alamrani was the project manager for the National Dialogue Support Project, working with the UN Special Advisor to Yemen. For several years she served as both assistant to the head, and general manager, of the International Cooperation Sector with the Supreme National Authority for Combating Corruption in Yemen. She volunteers for numerous initiatives in Yemen, and internationally, in the fields of anti-corruption, children’s rights, democracy, and cultural dialogue.
Ms. Alamrani holds MA degrees in Pharmaceuticals, Business Management Sciences, and Linguistics from Maastricht School of Management in the Netherlands, and Sana’a University in Yemen.
