Malala Yousafzai to Serve as Keynote Speaker at Soroptimist Virtual Convention

You Are Invited!

Soroptimist is thrilled to announce Nobel Laureate Malala Yousafzai as keynote speaker for our 2022 Convention on Friday, July 22, and Saturday, July 23. Malala will speak that Friday.

If you are interested in becoming a Soroptimist or want to learn more about membership, here’s an opportunity to see what it’s all about! Join the celebration and hear Malala speak on the importance of girls’ education—a topic very near and dear to our mission.

The virtual convention will bring thousands together for professional and personal development and focus on our Big Goal of investing in the dreams of half a million women and girls through access to education by 2031. 

Early registration for the event will be available from mid-March to April 30. 

“We are committed to helping women gain economic empowerment through education. Our 2022 Convention will provide actionable opportunities including virtual training sessions, access to new resources, as well as powerful speakers such as Malala.”

Iesha D. Brown, Vice President of Stakeholder Engagement.

Malala’s message about the importance of education for girls comes as the global pandemic has amplified the growing need for access to education. Due to COVID-19, an estimated 47 million additional women and girls have fallen into extreme poverty. With the Malala Fund reporting that 20 million more secondary school-age girls could be out of school after the COVID-19 crisis has passed.

Malala will be joined by other soon-to-be-announced speakers who will offer strategies to tackle current challenges in sessions on leadership, personal development, and Soroptimist’s unified efforts to help half a million women and girls live their dreams.  

Malala is a strong activist for girls’ education, the world’s youngest Nobel Peace Prize laureate, and the author of “I Am Malala: How One Girl Stood Up for Education and Changed the World”—as well as other best-selling books. 

Malala has a powerful story to share, and we cannot wait to be immersed in her story leading up to and during our 2022 virtual convention!
