Biography

Mona Hamdy is a PhD candidate and teaching fellow in Applied Ethics.

A native of Egypt, and the United States, her research pursues a modern morality for the 21st century—one based on common values of meaning, story, and holistic existence in our data-soaked, hyperconnected machine age.

Prior to co-founding the Al Baydha Society and Development Corporation in Saudi Arabia in 2009, Mona served as the Executive Director of the Mosaic Foundation.

Comprised of the spouses of the Arab ambassadors posted to Washington, DC, Mosaic was dedicated to improving the lives of women and children around the world and increasing cross-cultural understanding between the peoples of the Arab World and the United States.

Mona is the Arab World ambassador for Sir Richard Branson’s Global Blockchain Business Council.

She is currently found studying the cello, biohacking her sleep, and preparing to hike the Camino de Santiago.
