Roxanne’s belief in the transformative potential of social enterprises has taken her from the villages of rural Asia and Africa to the top boardrooms and design showrooms of New York and Los Angeles. As founder of ME to WE Artisans, Roxanne has created an international market for the intricate handiwork of more than 1,400 indigenous women in Kenya, allowing them to lift their families out of poverty and establish themselves as leaders in their communities. Through powerful and authentic stories, Roxanne shares insights about how women’s empowerment transforms communities.
