Keynote Speaker: Hannah Warren, "Empowering Women to Transform Communities"
In 2008, Hannah Warren, a former Rotary Youth Exchange Student to Thailand and a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar to India, learned about the plight of female weavers while taking their portraits in Maheshwar, Madhya Pradesh, India. She was inspired to found Jhoole, a nonprofit eco-fashion social enterprise designed to combat poverty and empower women. Jhoole is helping women to gain economic independence, send their children to school and, ultimately, break the cycle of chronic poverty. Hannah has a BA in South Asian Studies and Linguistics from the University of London, School of Oriental and African Studies and an MA in Fashion Entrepreneurship from the University of the Arts London, London College of Fashion.
