About this Grantee

To teach her students about ethical entrepreneurship and its relation to community outreach, Ms. Brown travels to Brazil to study a women’s empowerment cooperative. Ms. Brown learns the cooperative’s model for using traditional handicraft skills by building committed relationships between native artisans and established fashion designers. From what she learns, she develops a curriculum that shows how fashion businesses can be built from community outreach and on ethics in design practices.
