Dalia Ziada Named to ‘99 Under 33’

Egyptian activist makes Diplomatic Courier’s list.

Catalyst. Innovator. Influencer. These are just some of the traits required to make the Diplomatic Courier and Young Professionals in Foreign Policy’s “99 Under 33” list. And Dalia Ziada is one of the people who embodies those characteristics. Ziada is an Egyptian human-rights activist and executive director of the Ibn Khaldun Center for Development Studies, and she’s also appeared at past Women in the World summits. She’s openly spoken against the Muslim Brotherhood’s actions against women and ran as a candidate in Egypt’s first parliamentary elections. The “99 Under 33” list includes Millennials from business, journalism, technology, activism, and more.
