Show Notes

Dr. Angie Holzer received her EdD in Leadership and Learning with a specialization in Organizational Leadership from Aspen University. Her paper “Fighting Human Trafficking by Better Understanding Nonprofit Collaboration” showcases some of this research and was published in the August 2021 issue of the Aspen Journal of Scholarly Research.

In today’s episode, Angie shares her doctoral journey and how it equipped her with the skills she needed to develop WikiCharities as a way to help improve the nonprofit sector by providing a place where charities can connect and work together. 

Highlights

  • Before enrolling in a program - do your research
    • look at the courses - are they giving you the skills you need/want?
    • speak to faculty - does it FEEL like a good fit?
  • Start out with a general idea so you have time to become the expert before you hit your dissertation/doctoral project course
  •  Be open to your idea morphing as you learn more – let the research guide you
  •  Trust the process
  •  Get clear on your WHY
  •  Look at each course through the lens of: What am I learning here that will bring me closer to my long-term vision?

 Human trafficking is the illegal exploitation of a person – modern slavery. Anyone can be a victim of human trafficking, and it can occur in any U.S. community—cities, suburbs, and even rural areas. Traffickers use violence, manipulation, or false promises of well-paying jobs or romantic relationships to exploit victims. Victims are forced to work as prostitutes or to take jobs as migrant, domestic, restaurant, or factory workers with little or no pay. Human trafficking is a heinous crime that exploits the most vulnerable in society. Under the human trafficking program, the FBI investigates:

  • Sex trafficking: When individuals are compelled by force, fraud, or coercion to engage in commercial sex acts. Sex trafficking of a minor occurs when the victim is under the age of 18. For cases involving minors, it is not necessary to prove force, fraud, or coercion.
  • Labor trafficking: When individuals are compelled by force, threats, or fraud to perform labor or service.
  • Domestic servitude: When individuals within a household appear to be nannies, housekeepers, or other types of domestic workers, but they are being controlled and exploited.
