Through her own research and personal experience, Jennifer Gurecki has learned that conceptualizing poverty as only lack of financial resources will not help us end poverty. Understanding how other forms of capital – social, natural, and human – contribute to poverty is essential to grasping the complexity of poverty and ultimately how each of us can become part of the solution to ending it.
Jennifer Gurecki specializes in designing creative approaches to building resilient communities and cultivating female leadership. She is the founder and CEO of Coalition Snow, the world’s first women’s ski and snowboard company. #sisterhoodofshred
When she’s not playing in the Sierra Nevada, you can find her in Kenya working with Zawadisha, a non-profit social enterprise providing fair and transparent microloans to women through an innovative model of lending that is soundly pro-poor, pro-woman, and pro-environment. #investinwomen
