Having developed an entrepreneurial spirit at a young age, Katie Zeppieri is proud to be the Founder & Chief Empowerment Officer of Make Your Mark, a social enterprise that provides leadership development training to youth and is also the Founder of GIRL TALK Empowerment Day, a one-day pep rally dedicated to motivating girls to become leaders of positive change.
Katie’s outspoken voice on important issues has led her to travel across Canada and abroad to speak about issues that matter. She is a Blogger for The Huffington Post, an on-air radio panelist Monday mornings on NEWSTALK 1010, a motivational speaker who has spoken on many platforms, including on the TED Worldwide Stage, and a nationally-published writer who has had her work featured in such outlets as Forbes.com.
Katie is a champion for human rights and gained her passion for speaking out after both witnessing and experiencing many forms of bullying during her school years. Her active involvement and leadership has led her to the career path she has chosen today and provided her with opportunities for national recognition.
