Roxanne Joyal is CEO of ME to WE, an innovative social enterprise that empowers people to change the world with their everyday consumer choices. Her belief in the transformative potential of social enterprise 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 now leads social and economic empowerment initiatives for women in Kenya.
Roxanne graduated from Stanford University with a degree in international relations, earned a coveted Rhodes scholarship and a law degree at Oxford, and as a clerk for the Supreme Court of Canada. But rather than pursue a conventional career, she chose to bring her training back to the communities that first inspired her.
