Where is your Vital Voice?

July 21, 2012 § Leave a comment

Vital Voices Global Partnership is an international non-profit organization that works to empower and highlight empowered women throughout the world by engaging in topics such as economics, political participation and human rights.   Their mission is to “identify, invest in and bring visibility to extraordinary women around the world by unleashing their leadership potential to transform lives and accelerate peace and prosperity in their communities.”

Vital Voices recently highlighted some magnificent and inspiring women via their 11th Annual Global Leadership Awards. Not only is their award website clean and innovative, but the simple clarity of their stories emits a potency of inspiration  that will likely leave you feeling as though you ought to do something–or at least it did me. And unlike so many other organizations who hire disconnected narrators to muddle to messages they convey, these videos are a direct conduit from the vital voices whose lives they highlight.

Take the time this weekend (or whenever you happen to read this post) to watch and read a few of the stories. You’ll not regret it.

Both images on this post link to the first two stories that I watched on Vital Voices. For example, below you can hear a few of the vital female voices arising from the Arab Spring, and learn why

“Fear doesn’t prevent you from death. It prevents you from life.”
