Empower is an award-winning international youth-led platform & bimonthly publication enabling the upcoming generation of global trailblazers through change, advocacy, and direct action. Through our work, we intend to facilitate what’s already native to Gen-Zers around the world: the need to reform and question existing norms of social unrest and progress towards inclusive narratives of gender, sexuality, race, culture, and ethnicity with the unwavering voice that fosters and constructs our future as we deem fit. Previously known as Youth Magazine founded in Aug 2020, we revamped our platform to a bolder and stronger brand, ‘Empower,’ in August 2021 to realign it with our principles and resonate with the notion of revolutionisation. This is us - this is Gen Z- the change-initiators, the change-makers and the ones embodying change.
Our logo design is sketched in an approach that reaffirms our foundations: the mirrored ‘E’ signifies the concept of Me + Power, reiterating the unwavering zeal, drive and power which lies within us. The orange colour for ‘EM’ demonstrates the glimmer of the rising sun, the drive, and the passion that sparkles in our eyes with hope that the world’s future can transform for the better.
Change is what we strive for and live for; being a responsible media platform and shaping our readers’ perspectives ensures that we don’t just tell factual and well-researched information but also show it. From unfeigned change-making resources on our Carrd to petition links and infinite spaces for voicing today’s pressing issues, we ensure that through Empower, change genuinely occurs.
Speaking up, breaking free from our echo chambers and advocating for causes that truly matter to us- is what forms a significant part of our work.
From Mental Health, LGBTQIA+ Rights, Anti-Racism to Global Politics and Climate Change, we voice these issues valiantly and impeccably. Be it our bi-monthly magazine or pioneer interviews, we advocate for an equitable, sustainable and better world through everything that we do.
We are more than just spectators and bystanders- we are the makers of real change. At Empower, we do more than just social media advocacy and awareness - we take ‘direct action.’ Our #CreateChange resources enable you to move one step ahead from reading and reposting. You can donate, sign petitions, join protests, avail and give resources or even read up further about an issue you particularly care about and join the Empowerers.
