JUSTICE” use_theme_fonts=”yes” el_class=”ev_head”][vc_column_text]Sosamma believes women can make a profound impact on the lives and livelihoods of women in local, national and international communities. She will share how women in business are especially important for economic empowerment and well-being…not only of women in our communities, but for women across the globe.

She will discuss the status of women worldwide and the work that she is doing through her organization G.L.O.B.A.L., as well as ways for our business community to be engaged in justice for women and others in all various platforms.

G.L.O.B.A.L. Justice is an international nonprofit organization that serves as a resource to local, national, and international communities. We inform individuals and organizations on key justice issues.  Sosamma will explain how they help advocacy organizations and through educational institutions are able to make an impact.

She states, “We help inspire current and future advocates.  One of our projects is the GLBL MRKT and we will share some highlights and goods from the GLBL MRKT with attendees. We also have a Women Empowering Women Project that will host our annual Women Empowering Women Justice & Leadership Forum on Sunday, March 7, 2021.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

During this WORKshop you will learn how…

    1. Women help make a difference in communities: We will discuss ways that women can use their abilities, ideas and influence to make a positive difference for individuals and groups in the community and worldwide.
    2. We will explore how women can directly impact other women’s success in their work and opportunities.
    3. Women in business have a distinct role and opportunity to promote and ensure justice for all: We hope to inspire every business woman to consider how her work can promote and ensure justice.

[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text=”Meet Sosamma Samuel-Burnett, Founder/President, G.L.O.B.A.L. JUSTICE” use_theme_fonts=”yes” el_class=”ev_head”][vc_column_text]Sosamma Samuel-Burnett, J.D, is Founder and President of G.L.O.B.A.L Justice, an international non-profit organization with a vision to inform, impact, and inspire the generations to learn, lead, and do justice together. With 30+ years of experience in human rights advocacy and 15+ years as a university professor, Sosamma has focused the work of G.L.O.B.A.L. on serving as a significant resource on issues of justice.

Before establishing G.L.O.B.A.L. Justice, Sosamma moved to Northern Colorado in August 2013 after 12 years in public policy and higher education in Northern California. She served for nearly a decade as Founder and Chair of the Public Policy Department and also Founder and Executive Director of the Public Policy Institute both at William Jessup University in Rocklin, California. She also previously served as Co-Director for the Sacramento based California Attorneys for Criminal Justice, the largest state-wide association of its kind in the country, as well as U.S. Program Director for the Institute for Food and Development Policy in Oakland.

Previously, Sosamma served as the Program Director for the U.S. Racial Discrimination Program at International Human Rights Law Group in Washington, D.C., as well as Development and Policy Director for the Minnesota Advocates for Human Rights in Minneapolis. Sosamma also served in a range of policy and advocacy organizations, law firms, and public affairs and media firms in Washington, D.C., Minneapolis/St. Paul, and Tupelo, Mississippi.

Sosamma earned a Bachelor of Science in Foreign Service, with a concentration in International Politics: Law, Relations, & Organization, from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service in Washington, D.C. She also earned a Juris Doctorate, with an emphasis in International Human Rights Law and Public Policy, from the University of Minnesota Law School in Minneapolis, MN. Sosamma told me to edit this portion down – but I believe you would want knowledge of her vast experience!

Sosamma was born in Kerala, India. During her early school years, she lived throughout Ontario and New Brunswick, Canada, and in her later school years in the Lake Minnetonka region of Minnesota, and in her professional years in Washington, D.C., Mississippi, and Northern California.  Her husband, Major Zack Samuel-Burnett is a former U.S. Air Force U-2 pilot and current Southwest Airlines Captain. They are the proud parents of a 15-year-old son and twin 10-year-old daughters.  The Samuel-Burnetts have lived in Colorado since August 2013 and love the outdoors, travel, and have many adventures together.
