AlJawhara is the Head of Wellbeing and Safeguarding at Qatar Foundation. With a background in Sociology of Education and Cultural Studies, AlJawhara’s work focuses on the importance of unpacking bias and creating opportunities to develop authentic relationships with the community and context in which schools operate. She has been a part of the Safeguarding and Child Protection program at Qatar Foundation since its introduction and has worked to design and develop policies, procedures and training that bring international best practices in conversation with local laws, cultures, and customs. AlJawhara’s work emphasizes the importance of recognizing and meeting your community where they are, and going on the journey together,rather than importing and applying a one-size-fits-all approach.
