Invited Speakers

Ziauddin Yousafzai

Pakistani educator Ziauddin Yousafzai reminds the world of a simple truth that many don't want to hear: Women and men deserve equal opportunities for education, autonomy, an independent identity.

He tells stories from his own life and the life of his daughter, Malala, who was shot by the Taliban in 2012 simply for daring to go to school. "Why is my daughter so strong?" Yousafzai asks. "Because I didn't clip her wings."

He is a co-founder of the Malala Fund with his daughter and their close family friend Shiza Shahid. In Pakistan, Ziauddin was an educator, running several schools. He is also a U.N. Special Adviser on Global Education.
Ziauddin will join us as a keynote speaker during our CEESA Conference in Prague.
