About this event

12 years after the conflict in Syria began and Jusoor was founded, we are once again mobilizing the Arab Diaspora to create impact through innovative ideas and passionate champions for the Global Syrian community. Jusoor's mission is to "maximize the potential of Syrian youth through education.” One of the ways we fulfill this mission is by creating a platform to connect Syrian youth passionate about closing the opportunity gap for Syrians around the world. Through conferences like these, our hope is to connect like-minded young people and spark new ideas in service of many new high-impact initiatives being born. 

Our agenda will include:

  • A panel discussion moderated by Jusoor’s co-founder and CEO of Mailchimp Rania Succar and featuring:
  • Bassel Hamwi, CEO of HamwiConsult
  • Lexi Shereshewsky, Executive Director of The Azraq Education and Community Fund
  • Mikey Muhanna Founder & Executive Director of Afikra
  • Idea pitches by speakers who will present their projects on social change
  • Workshops on changemaking through education, employment and culture and heritage. Workshop leaders include:
  • Safouh Takrouri, Strategy and Analytics Manager at Snowflake and Chairman of Jusoor’s Board of Directors
  • George Batah, Strategy and Operations Manager at Attentive and Founder of SYE Initiative
  • Ghada Soufan who works in Global Brand & Integrated Marketing at WhatsApp

A Fireside chat moderated by Dr. Alexandra Chen, Jusoor Trustee and Interim Executive Director, featuring Rania Succar and Raja Ghawi, Partner at Era Ventures.
