The Young Leaders Circle
They are 11. They are pharmacists, lawyers, analysts, directors. And they all dream of a world free of sexual violence.
The Young Leaders Circle is a group of young professionals who are pooling their diverse knowledge and resources to raise awareness of the Foundation’s cause.
This new generation of ambassadors seeks to harness their expertise and networks to make a difference. They are already hard at work raising awareness among their immediate circles and communities. The Young Leaders want to spark new dialogue and lead the way to a change of mentality. The goals are empowerment, collaborative prevention, and action.
