Event description



Saturday, October 6, 2018

We invite you to attend the Annual Global Empowerment Summit 2018 “TIME to RISE!”

During the Summit we will explore the following topics for global change:

· The power of collaboration

· The power of collective minds

· Social impact

· Global connections

· Human triumph

· Human trafficking

· Award recognition

· Peace

Through the Annual Global Empowerment Summit, we hope to motivate and mobilize local and global change makers and utilize existing mechanisms to sensitize and create awareness for critical social issues, such as human trafficking. We believe involved people working together on issues of common concern can find pathways for change, build better caring and sustainable communities, and inform our youth, women, and girls, enabling them to take positive action on societal issues.

When we collaborate we build bridges. Teamwork can do the following:

· Create cross-cultural understanding

· Instill a strong sense of dignity and acceptance

· Promote problem solving

· Open doors to economic opportunity

· Allow for healthy personal growth

Do not miss this opportunity to hear and interact with local and global leaders, including speakers from the United Nations and the World Bank. Listen to first-hand stories of triumph from survivors of human trafficking, and share your thoughts with youth and peers on how we can change society and our community through collaborative work.

During the lunch break, attendees will have an opportunity to meet community partners and learn about the great work being done in their organizations, as well as explore hand-made items from a special mini market place in support of female refugee business owners. A menu of international food will be catered by refugees and human trafficking survivors from different countries.

Who should attend:

· Open to all compassionate citizens

· Youth leaders

· Academics

· Researchers

· Non-profits

· Change makers

* Counselors will be onsite during the event*

Let’s change the world together! Be the source of change!
