Saema Somalya is Senior Vice President, Deputy General Counsel (Corporate) and Office of the Corporate Secretary for Fifth Third bank. Saema is a graduate of Yale University Law School. She has not only worked incredibly hard outside the home but is also a mother to a beautiful daughter and wife of a Healthcare & Technology Entrepreneur, Nabeel Kaukab. I had the pleasure of meeting Saema when she married Nabeel. Her husband’s family and ours are close, and we have grown to love and adore Saema. Last week I did an Instagram Live with Saema. When I was searching for someone who has devoted her life to work and family, she was one of the first people who came to mind.

A person devoted to her job and her family.  An American Pakistani Who is breaking the glass ceiling.

She has made a name for herself at Fifth Third Bank. Most recently she was featured in The Deal Pipeline discussing the importance of diversity within Corporate boards. We are so proud of all her accomplishments and I absolutely love how she remains grounded through it all. She is a great leader and example for all women. Saema is a woman of color, American Pakistani who is breaking the glass ceiling. Please watch the link below and meet this influential woman!
