The Scheherazade Foundation is a private nonprofit incorporated in the United Kingdom, established to recalibrate society in three key ways.
- To seek to empower women – and in particular young women – who will step out into the world, becoming leaders and role models for future generations.
- To bridge cultures by striving towards shared values and know-how.
- To harness the teaching power of stories that has been a bedrock of the human experience since the dawn of civilization.
At The Scheherazade Foundation, we believe the challenges facing humankind can only be overcome by remembering our similarities rather than dwelling on what sets us apart from one another.
By removing glass ceilings, working across frontiers, and by thinking in both new and ancient ways, we are certain that giant strides can be made for the good of us all, and for generations to come.
