The Redefy Team was invited to the YTH Live Conference along with the leading experts in the youth, technology, and health industry two weeks ago in San Francisco. Founder Ziad Ahmed, Senior Vice President Nick Jain, and Head Officer of Development Melinda Guo presented on the panel, The Power of Advocacy, and engaged in a robust Q&A session about Redefy’s work and the importance of youth voice to advance health and social justice. We discussed the importance of technology in spreading Redefy’s message and Redefy’s focus on creating inclusive high school environments to better the mental health of youth everywhere. We had the opportunity to interact and connect with leaders in LGBTQ rights, sexual and reproductive health, gender issues, mental health, virtual reality, and more. It was wonderful to hear the youth and industry leaders emphasize giving youth “a seat at the table” on the issues that directly affect them. Representation is crucial for progress, and we are grateful to have been part of it.
