In 2008, in partnership with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Carly founded the One Woman Initiative to engage women in countries like Pakistan, Egypt, India, and the Philippines to transform the lives of women economically, societally and politically. Carly and Secretary Rice understood that by giving economic empowerment to women, they were laying the foundation for freedom from fear and providing communities the possibility of economic success for generations to come.
By empowering women with information, training, micro lending, technology and the advocacy of their basic rights, the One Woman Initiative helped to transform not just the women they served, but those women’s families and the families around them.
“It takes only one woman to make a difference.”
– Secretary Condoleezza Rice
