J. Aisha Brown
CEO/Founder, Global Awareness Project Consulting
Boasting a diverse heritage that spans the cultures of Latin America, the Caribbean, and the United States, Aisha Brown’s diverse upbringing bore her into the realm of international affairs. Following her true passion, she traveled to Guatemala in 2005 to work with indigenous witnesses of the genocide cases against former dictators Romeo Lucas Garcia and Efrain Rios Montt. It was in Guatemala where she found her true purpose as an activist - to bring economic justice and the right to self-determine one’s livelihood to the forefront of human rights.
After years of studying, examining, and experiencing first hand the barriers to access and equality affecting people of color throughout the world Ms. Brown founded Global Awareness Project Consulting (GAP Consulting) in the summer of 2007. GAP Consulting is a progressive firm that addresses the impact of socio-economic and socio-political policies towards communities of color worldwide. Through her business she consults organizations in a variety of industries to provide solutions and strategies of empowerment for global minorities.
Aisha Brown resides in Washington, DC, where in addition to GAP Consulting, she is a founding member of Grupo Afro Descendiente, an Afro-Latino advocacy group, and is the Director of the Neighborhood Networks computer literacy program for Howard University.
