Ellen’s active presence on our Board kept us conscious and aware of our primary goal – that of ensuring regular work for our rural artisan shareholders and taking concrete steps towards the economic empowerment of women. She encouraged us to scale up, and work in other parts of the country, where there was both : a need and an opportunity. Coming from a business background and with a commitment to women’s empowerment she encouraged us to take steps to strengthen the social part of our DNA. Along with her colleagues she conducted workshops for our team on different aspects of our work – from production, to communication, and marketing. We miss her presence in RangSutra.
