SARA AL AWADHI Law & Governance
Gender Equality


Sara Al Awadhi is an Emirati international lawyer, currently working at the global law firm Winston & Strawn, LLP. Sara advises government institutions and private investors on large corporate transactions, conventional and Islamic financing arrangements, and large energy and infrastructure projects throughout the Middle East and Africa. Sara obtained her law degree in the UK, and has practiced law with multiple global law firms at their offices in the UAE, London and New York.

Sara spends a large part of her personal time advocating for female empowerment and diversity and inclusion in the workplace, and discussing the legal sector to ensure access by young females (especially Emiratis) to the legal sector. To further these goal, Sara has taken part in multiple panel discussions and given interviews on these topics. Sara was also a TEDx keynote speaker where she discussed access to the legal sector, Emirati culture and the importance of women considering a career in law.

When she is not in her office practicing law, or busy advocating for women empowerment and diversity and inclusion, Sara spends her time exploring the mountains of the UAE to find new routes to hike and boulders to climb. Sara has also begun to speak more publically, through podcasts and articles, about the importance of exploring the UAE’s outdoors as a way to truly understand Emirati culture and values, and seeks to empower more women to do the same.
