Kimberly CorbanSurvivor & Advocate
Kimberly Corban is a motivational speaker and survivor’s advocate from Colorado. Her experience as a college survivor of sexual assault in 2006 led her to pursue victim advocacy work in the criminal justice field upon completing her graduate studies at the University of Northern Colorado. Since 2007, she has toured the country delivering dynamic and engaging keynotes on the transformation from victim to survivor using her case as an illustration for what can happen when the criminal justice system works. She was a co-presenter for the Colorado District Attorney Council’s keynote address at the 2013 annual conference.
In 2016, Ms. Corban was featured on CNN’s live broadcast of Anderson Cooper’s 360 Town Hall with President Barack Obama. She questioned one of the President’s policies in front of millions of viewers which lead to her rise in poignant, survivor-focused commentary for multiple media outlets both in print and on television. Today Ms. Corban is a wife, mother of four, and a trailblazer for survivor advocacy via social media platforms. She delivered her first TED talk in December of 2018 which is available to watch online. She is a fan of sarcasm, movie quotes, and the Oxford Comma.
