Since March 2015 Amira Jehia is the Managing Director of the NGO Mein Grundeinkommen and has also started the project Sanktionsfrei together with her team. The campaigns goal is to point out alternatives for a socially more equal society. Starting with themselves, they experiment with new forms of work. They are developing the approach of holocracy further, based on their individual needs as an organization and team. They work with principles such as a needs-based-salary, the 4-day-week, no maximum holidays and much more. Parallel to that in May 2015 she has co-founded the network-event format Get Engaged together with her business partner Shai Hoffmann, that connects those who are dissatisfied by certain structures with those who already actively work on alternatives. In September 2016 they will host the next conference on "Failure" in Berlin. Further she co-produces and co-markets the Karma Classics, a fairtrade alternative to the popular Converse Chukh.
