Emily Scott has over 25 years of experience in the corporate and consulting world.  Having spent her life merging hard work and investment savvy with volunteerism and philanthropy, she comes to the conversation curious.  In 2011, a life-altering trip brought her to the City of Joy, a transformative leadership community for women survivors of violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo, founded by Eve Ensler, Dr. Denis Mukwege, Christine Schuler Deschryver, and V-Day.  Her TEDx talk relates her profound experience and its influence on developing The Power of AND.

What is a Passionaholic?

A person whose passion engages one’s being so completely that other pursuits pale in comparison.


"Emily is a woman who can’t be forgotten - her attitudes, actions and character have impacted lives. During her many visits to us in Bukavu, she displayed love for vulnerable and afflicted people, and extreme generosity. She has made every effort to support us."

VDAY CONGO Representative & Director of City of Joy, Bukavu
