Episode Show Notes:

In this episode, I am thrilled to be joined by Debi Steven, the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Action Breaks Silence, an educational charity organisation based in South Africa, India, and the United Kingdom. This organisation aims to create a world where women and girls can live their lives free from the fear of gender-based violence.

Our conversation uncovers the pivotal role empathy plays in helping to reduce gender-based violence and how empathy work with young men can change communities. Do tune in and hear what Debi has to say. She is part of the change our world so desperately needs.
