Empowering Young Leaders
inspiration ✵ mentorship ✵ activism
Being a young leader can feel lonely in today’s world. Empowerment Collective invites young leaders from around the world to connect, collaborate and build their collective strength. Youth Visionaries support one another in their individual and shared missions to create change.
Empowerment Collective collaborates with students, schools, colleges and universities to raise awareness of modern slavery. Through research, the development of campaigns, ethical consumption programming and advocacy we grow our impact and global understanding of modern slavery.
Invite Nasreen Sheikh to speak at your events and share the impact of Empowerment Collective Initiatives and EC stories.
EC staff, board members, volunteers and supporters are invited to collaborate with us and help raise awareness about our mission and vision.
Together we can build a speakers package to inspire your community to connect, create and collaborate in joining the movement to a world woven in community.
Nasreen Sheikh and Ann Boyd first met when they collaborated on writing How The Light Gets In: The true story of one woman’s journey from survivor of modern slavery to social entrepreneur, a short play incorporating movement, song, story, and biography.
