Sharon Benning-Prince

I have successfully been working as a general counsel trouble shooter since 2008 which allows me to have flexibility to work on my pro bono projects but to also give key focus to my clients and family.

I have been assisting International Justice Mission as an international advocate on anti slavery matters and awareness campaigns. My roles as a trustee of each of Talitha Arts and the Medaille Trust have provided me with insight and wide reaching knowledge of the front line processes for anti slavery and victim support. I only recently stepped down as a trustee of the Medaille and now am the Greater London/London anti slavery envoy for the Medaille Trust and through this role, have the privilege to disseminate information on modern slavery in the UK to a wider audience. This role as an anti slavery envoy provides me with a platform to expand people’s knowledge on modern slavery and spotting signs and further education on grooming and slavery in school provides the younger generations with greater understanding and insight.

More recently, I am also proud to be one of the founding participants of through that has the objective to provide a global platform for all women, from all races, religions and industries to tell their stories and empower other women. A different form of Wikipedia for women that celebrates all women – From the farm and factory workers, the caregivers and the well-known successful women that we all admire, will record stories of these unsung heroes as part of the Thankful4Women initiative. It is a platform that will ensure their legacy and contribution to their families, community and society will be forever documented and recorded as an anthropological record of women’s contribution to the world. Never again will these stories be untold. I am extremely proud to be one of the founding contributors and participants of and urge all women to share their stories.
