Hello SHE Friends,
I have been a member of the SHE team for one week and I have already made it to the United Nations! Although I was only there this year as a attendee to the Commission on the Status of Women, one of my goals is to make sure SHE is there as one of the lead presenters at next year’s conference to prove that our market-based approach has unleashed the social and economic change needed to reduce gender disparities in education, health, economics, and social status. It’s one of many goals that I am excited to deliver upon for SHE.
As the SHE Global Fellow, I support SHE’s business development and capital raising efforts, and manages SHE’s blog and social media presence. I come from a marketing background, having worked in both digital and retail marketing for a French luxury beauty brand, and so I am incredibly excited to add a new perspective on how we can win over one of the toughest consumers – a 13 year girl.
The scope and variety of my work is never boring, and the SHE’s staff enthusiasm and passion is contagious! It’s been incredibly valuable and rewarding to see how each member of the team contribute to the process of bringing the SHE28 initiative to market.
SHE works tirelessly to provide girls and women access to affordable, eco-friendly pads and its exciting to discover how much visible change that has already been produced in Rwanda with our education program, our advocacy efforts to eliminate the excise tax on pads, and business development as we move the SHE LaunchPad from the lab to large-scale manufacturing.
I can’t wait to share more with you about my work at SHE throughout the year and give you the first-hand scoop on exciting developments!
