Saudi Ambassador to Washington Prince Khalid bin Salman issued an order to assign Fatima Baeshen the embassy’s spokeswoman, making her the first female spokesperson for a government institution.

She spent several years working in Riyadh’s Saudi Ministry of Labor and the Saudi Ministry of Economy and Planning before returning to the United States in 2017.

She has also worked as a consultant for the World Bank, the Islamic Development Bank and the Emirates Foundation for Youth Development.
