Recognized by the White House as a Champion of Change and a Forbes Under 30 Honoree in Law and Policy. For over a decade, Jamira has made it her mission to employ her personal experiences as the driving force to improve the lives of others. From implementing anti-violence programs throughout Philadelphia – when she was just a high school student, to organizing youth workshops around the world – in collaboration with the United Nations. Currently, Jamira divides her time as a social impact consultant and as the Head of Youth Engagement and Skills for the Global Business Coalition for Education (GBC-EDU). Her role at GBC-EDU is to ensure a collaborative relationship between youth, bilateral organizations and business leaders; to enable innovative ways to educate, engage and activate young people around the world. Prior to the Global Business Coalition for Education, Jamira worked as the National Deputy Millennial Vote Director at Hillary For America and before that, she managed the youth, gun violence, and criminal justice portfolios at Amnesty International USA—one of the first and largest human rights organizations in the world. Jamira also consults with a number of public and private entities on how to authentically engage impacted communities. Working at the intersection of policy, community and social good, Jamira provides unique insight that will help actualize the change we all so desperately need.
