SAN DIEGO - San Diego-based political podcast Flip the Script: The Future is Female is proud to announce the confirmation of Featured Guest Ibtihaj Muhammad for the much anticipated 2nd Annual Women Who Change the Game Awards Celebration. The awards ceremony will take place on November 15th, 2018 at the Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation in Southeast San Diego.

The podcast is hosted by Ismahan Abdullahi, Director of Movement and Campaign Strategies at Partnership for the Advancement of New Americans (PANA), and Nicole Capretz, Executive Director of Climate Action Campaign, both nonprofits based in San Diego County.

In the spirit of last year’s unforgettable event, Flip the Script will seek to honor three women who have shown outstanding progressive leadership in San Diego: those who have taken action, spoken up and successfully fought for key progressive issues. 

Ramla Sahid stated "As Executive Director of Partnership for the Advancement of New Americans, and a personal fan of the work and accomplishments of Ibtihaj Muhammad, we could not be more excited to host such a dynamic and inspiring figure here in San Diego.”

"Muhammad is a literal game-changer, both on the Olympic and public stage where her influence continues to expand beyond  the fencing world and into the hearts and minds of young women everywhere. As a black Muslim woman myself, who has had the experiences of being told what was realistic or unrealistic for me to strive for, I am thrilled that Ibtihaj serves as a popular example of the power, resilience, and badassery of hijab-wearing women,” said Sahid.

The celebration on Thursday, November 15th, 2018 will last from 11:30am - 1:30pm. Tickets are available now for purchase, and there’s still time to be included in the first round of table sponsorship announcements!
