The Obama Foundation announced that Yazda Legal Advocay Director Natia Navrouzov is among the 36 emerging leaders selected to join the Obama Foundation Leaders Europe program. The program will train participants in leadership development and civic engagement to help build their skills and scale their work across public, private, and nonprofit sectors. This year’s cohort represents 24 countries across the region.

Natia Navrouzov leads the legal advocacy efforts of Yazda, an organization founded in 2014 to support victims of the Yazidi genocide. Since its inception, Yazda has provided Yazidi survivors of ISIS with humanitarian, accountability, and advocacy services in their post-genocide recovery. Natia is the organization’s first legal advocacy director, and she ensures that evidence is gathered in a survivor-centered way. Under Natia’s direction, survivors’ testimonies and crime sites have been documented for submission to to national and international justice mechanisms, including the International Criminal Court (ICC), and have led to the first genocide conviction of an ISIS member for crimes against Yazidi victims. She believes that survivors must be informed and empowered to make their own decisions about how to seek justice and has supported the establishment of the The Yazidi Survivors Network (YSN).

As part of the six-month, non-residential program, the dedicated changemakers will convene virtually each week for interactive sessions designed to help them drive change by honing their leadership skills, building deep relationships with their peers, and engaging with thought leaders and members of the Obama Foundation community. They will also have an opportunity to participate in various virtual experiences and special events, including one-on-one conversations with experienced mentors in the Foundation's global network.

Launched in 2020, Leaders Europe builds upon the legacy of the Obamas and their deep commitment to the region, with a focus on shared values and ethical leadership. The program is creating a network of leaders who drive positive, innovative change in their communities throughout the continent and across the globe. The 2022 class of Europe Leaders are working across a broad range of issues and focus areas, including human rights, climate change, strengthening democracy, and more.

The Obama Foundation Leaders program is designed to further inspire, empower, and connect emerging leaders from Africa, Asia Pacific, and Europe to change their respective communities and the world.
