Speaker Bio

Khalil Osiris is the founder of Truth & Reconciliation Conversations (TRC), a global initiative focused on galvanizing action to end racism and gender based violence.

 

He’s also the founder of Reflecting Freedom Network (RFN), a non-profit charity that provides access to web-based, accredited education for non-traditional learners including justice-involved youth and adults.

 

 

Osiris is the author of the accredited course and program, Psychology of Incarceration, which teaches that “prison is a metaphor for self-imposed limitations” and freedom is a choice. His course and program are taught at universities and used at correctional and rehabilitation treatment centers throughout America.

 

 

In 2011 Osiris moved to South Africa, where he worked as a consultant for schools, community organizations and companies that hire returning citizens. While there, he was selected to host a popular TV show, Each One Teach One, which won the 2016 South African Film and Television Award (SAFTA) for Best Factual Educational Program.

 

Osiris is a social impact visionary who is pioneering the use of entertainment to promote civic education that galvanizes youths to take action to end violence against women and girls and documents their civic engagement in their local schools and communities.

 

Osiris conducts thought-provoking talks on a range of issues including Five Commitments for Healing & Racial Reconciliation, Psychology of Incarceration and Civic Education in Action.
