Yassmin Abdel-Magied Biography

Yassmin Abdel-Magied is a Sudanese-Australian writer, engineer and award-winning social advocate.

Whether through literary essays, educational tiktoks or hosting a live television broadcast, Abdel-Magied is an assured and intelligent voice, committed to social justice and making complex ideas accessible to all.

In her non-fiction writing, Abdel-Magied analyses the systemic challenges facing progressive politics and explores how we can collectively build fairer, safer societies. In fiction, both in novels and on screen, Abdel-Magied enjoys fish-out-of-water stories, exploring rich, complex themes and centering Black Muslim women. Abdel-Magied has published four books, written two plays and is currently developing a number of projects for screen.

One of the LinkedIn 2020 #Changemakers and 2022 Tiktok #Teammates, Abdel-Magied is an award-winning speaker and globally sought-after advisor on issues at the intersections of race, gender and faith. She has delivered keynotes and workshops in 25 countries in Arabic, English and a smattering of French. Abdel-Magied founded her first organisation, Youth Without Borders, at the age of 16, leading it for nine years before co-founding two other organisations focused on serving women of colour. Her TED talk, What does my headscarf mean to you, has been viewed over 2.5 million times and was selected as one of TED’s top 10 ideas.

With over a decade of governance experience across sectors, Abdel-Magied’s work is informed by both theory and experience. She founded Youth Without Borders at the age of 16, leading it for nine years before starting Mumtaza, focusing on the empowerment of women of colour. She has been awarded numerous awards for her advocacy, including the Young Voltaire Award for Free Speech and Queensland Young Australian of the Year, and currently sits on the Trustee Board of the London Library, previously serving on the Boards of the Queensland Museum, ChildFund Australia and the domestic violence prevention organisation, OurWatch.

Abdel-Magied has presented TV and podcasts in Australia, Britain and the US, including national current affairs show Australia Wide, ground-breaking documentary The Truth About Racism, Hijabistas, a series looking at the modest fashion scene in Australia. She is a regular news and current affairs commentator on the BBC, Aljazeera, Monocle 24 and can be heard hosting podcasts such as Motor Mouth (on becoming a Formula 1 driver), EY’s Better Questions (helping CEOs lead into the future), and The Guilty Feminist.

In all her work, Abdel-Magied is an advocate for transformative justice and a fairer, safer world for all.
