4TH ANNUAL GLOBAL EMPOWERMENT SUMMIT 2019 at UC San Diego

" INVESTING IN THE FUTURE - CHANGEMAKERS"

The 2019 Global Empowerment Summit at UC San Diego is dedicated to changemakers, sustainability, solutions, and diversity and inclusion. The Summit will bring together progressive global leaders, as well as changemakers working within San Diego's underrepresented communities.

Now in its 4th year, this annual event will again inspire, challenge, and boost participation among students, the local community and the UC San Diego campus to engage in social issues with more vigor and enthusiasm than ever before. The 2019 Summit will motivate participants to focus on humanity and the necessity of enlightened education, empowerment, compassion, empathy, peace and transformational leadership for a sustainable and inclusive world. At the core of this program is a responsibility to engender the highest level of compassion, eco-consciousness and dignity for all.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT:

San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer will hand over a Proclamation to the University of California San Diego declaring that he wants to work toward making the City of San Diego the kindest city in the USA.

SPECIAL GUEST:

We are honored to have Ms. Lindsay Wagner as our keynote speaker, best known for her iconic television show the "Bionic Woman". Ms. Wagner is an actor, advocate, and mother, humanitarian and author, and was the first woman super hero to inspire hundreds of young girls and women. She took on films that included conflict resolution as ideas and focused on the development of the human qualities in the characters she portrayed or acted opposite to inspire stories about personal motivation.

Off screen, Ms. Wagner continuously works both publicly and privately in advocacy and public education. She shares the knowledge and experience, which have greatly influenced her life and have profoundly enhanced her awe of our often unrecognized human potential.

SPECIAL AWARDS:

Three exceptional individuals will be recognized for the Source of Change Lifetime Achievement Award during the summit. The Lifetime Achievement Award was created to recognize special dedicated citizens who are making an extraordinary difference through their commitment to positive social impact.

All are welcome to attend and participate in a day filled with engaging panels, discussions and community-building activities. Additional information and summit details will be provided on this page shortly. Please mark your calendars and plan to join us for this impactful and inspiring event.

"Everyone talks about peace but no one educates for peace... When educating to cooperate and owe each other solidarity, that day we will be educating for peace."
