Grace Wamue-Ngare works to empower women and girls in her native Kenya to break the chains of societal marginalization. She prepares women for political leadership and economic self-sufficiency using various empowerment tactics. She is also a Senior Lecturer and the Head of the Gender & Development Studies Department at Kenyatta University.
Storybrook Media filmed and edited more than 25 videos over the summer of 2015 for Global Women's Leadership Network (GWLN), a Silicon Valley-based nonprofit that empowers women leaders like Grace to develop their own businesses and nonprofits. The women meet in Silicon Valley for a weeklong "residency," then return to their home countries to continue working for another six months via Skype, email and phone with their US-based business coaches.
