In a 2014 interview with Time magazine, Meyler explained her mission as founder of More Than Me, a school for vulnerable girls from the West Point slum in Monrovia:
“Our mission for the school was, when girls graduated they got to choose what came next for their own lives.
And then Ebola hit, and our whole mission shifted. The President closed schools indefinitely. As long as Ebola existed in Liberia, it’s a threat to the lives of our children. And we have to do whatever it takes to make sure that we can do our best at ending Ebola. So our mission changed from helping these young girls go to school and making sure they have real choices when they graduate to keeping these children alive.”
As it meeting Katie Meyler is not enough inspiration, attendees will have the opportunity to gain insight from Dr. Pamela Marzban on the topic, “Networking, Innovation, Giveback: What It Means to Be a Female Entrepreneur.”
Did we mention live DJ entertainment? This in NYC, after all.
