History making humanitarian, author and international keynote speaker Rabia Siddique is a power house for change.
Entertaining, powerful and engaging, this best-selling author represents a living example of how each one of us can be a force for positive change in our own lives and those around us.
Having survived a hostage crisis in Iraq, Rabia garnered global attention for making the British military accountable for silencing her about her ordeal and role in releasing captured special forces soldiers.
Standing up for justice in the face of public ridicule, Rabia’s brave action in suing the British Government for sexism and racism became a catalyst for policy change to ensure a fairer workplace for women and cultural minorities in the British military.
Drawing on extensive experience as a former criminal, war crimes, terrorism and human rights lawyer, military career, psychology training and business, Rabia is also a sought-after transformational coach and mentor.
She has provided equality and diversity training at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst where her charges included Prince William.
A noted media commentator, Rabia’s first book, Equal Justice, is the focus for a feature film.
She also has the delightful challenge of being Mum to triplet boys.
