She is a Palestinian Muslim American and a self-proclaimed “pure New Yorker, born and raised in Brooklyn!” She is the co-founder of the first Muslim online organizing platform, MPower Change and co-founder of Until Freedom, an intersectional racial justice organization focused on direct action and power building in communities of color.

Linda was one of the national co-chairs of the largest single day protest in US history, the Women’s March on Washington. She has been named amongst 500 of the most influential Muslims in the world. She was recognized as one of Fortune’s 50 Greatest Leaders and featured as one of Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world.

She is most recognized for her transformative intersectional organizing work and movement building."

About this Conference

How do you see yourself in All Spaces and in All Places?

With humble beginnings, this conference was created in partnership with students and staff at Clemson University who were passionate about the experience of women in leadership. Each year, the conference has grown into an incredibly successful program that builds capacity and efficacy in leadership.

Clemson University's Women in Leadership conference is focused around exploring topics related to women in leadership, including but not limited to intersectionality, leadership, gender topics, well-being, allyship, and more. This conference is open to people from all spaces and places.

Each year, our conference is developed by a planning committee that is composed of undergraduate students, graduate students, staff, and faculty at Clemson University.

Join us for our first virtual conference on March 6th, 2021!

This year's theme is "All Spaces. All Places."
