The Changemakers Series has been designed to explore the need for capital markets to fully invest in and through women as drivers of solutions to the world’s most pressing environmental and social challenges. Our conversations feature engaging and productive interactions among investors and leaders who are seeking strategies to deploy capital.
The conversation features changemakers, Marty Nealon, who has over 25 years of experience in the retail business and served as President of HSN – the TV, Internet and catalog business. She oversaw the acquisition of Afterthoughts by Claire’s and then served as president of the combined 2,600 store chain. She held senior positions at Macy’s and Bloomingdales’ and currently works with women entrepreneurs as an advisor and mentor. Marty is in conversation with Amy Norman, Founder and CEO of Little Passports. Stemming from Amy’s early interest in adventure, Little Passports was designed to give children the opportunity to see the world in a new way. The award-winning and one-of-a-kind activity kits are offered through monthly subscriptions and a line of complementary standalone products that draw from science, nature, and global experiences.
