Organised by University of California San Diego, the Global Empowerment Summit started from the assumption that economic empowerment cannot be a one-way street. The 2016 summit explored the power of collaboration, social impact, global connection, human triumph, recognition, and the power of collective minds: human trafficking think tank both locally, nationally, and internationally. The summit also focused on “Be the Source of Change” in order to combat human trafficking, including sex trafficking, at the local, national and international levels.
