Where is your Vital Voice?

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.
