As someone who is passionately committed to development, she believes that three things—choices, voices, and opportunities—are the keys to changing the trajectory of people’s lives. 

TODAY she talks about the importance of listening to social entrepreneurs who are in the trenches, making a true difference in philanthropy.

Who should we interview next? We’d love to hear your thoughts.

Why Women(+)? We were inspired by one of the pioneers of this movement Jacki Zehner, and we adapted the term from ShePlace: “women(+) includes all self-identifying women, including cis and transgender women, non-binary and gender-fluid individuals, and all allies who share our values.”
