The World Federation of KSIMC is pleased to be part of the Embrace 2015 initiative in the UK.
Embrace2015 is a multifaceted project with the primary objective to implement healthy and sustainable community economics within the Shia community in the UK. As part of this initiative, the team has organised the Embrace2015 Event on 2 August 2015.
The event will act as a launch platform for a national framework which will be the vehicle for effective communication and collaboration between OUR organisations, OUR businesses and most importantly OUR people.
We have provided below details on the event from the Embrace 2015 team.
The Embrace2015 conference is the first of its kind and with the progressive spirit and cooperation of the leading organisations in our community.
Our very own #RealTalk workshop where you get to participate in a contemporary panel discussion on UK politics and how policies and various political agendas will impact you as a Shia living in the UK.
Whether you are a budding and aspiring entrepreneur, established business owner or a professional, this seminar offers an unrivalled learning opportunity.
On the day, our esteemed delegation will have the opportunity to engage with a diverse spectrum of businesses owned by individuals from within the Shia community in the UK.
Now with all these thought provoking talks and inspirational artistic displays, you are bound to build up an appetite and when you do, you will be spoilt for choice.

We have secured Tobacco Dock in London as the stage for the launch of our revolution, with a jam packed itinerary comprised of a national level conference and business expo, thought provoking and insightful workshops, an inspirational art exhibition and, to keep everyone energised, a selection of fine foods to satisfy the most cultured taste buds.
