TORONTO – March 13, 2018 – KEV Group, a leading education technology company and provider of the School Cash Suite, is pleased to announce that social entrepreneur Roxanne Joyal, CEO of ME to WE, and member of the Order of Canada, will deliver the keynote speech at the company’s 14th Annual User Conference in Toronto. ME to WE is an innovative social enterprise that empowers people to change the world with their everyday consumer choices.
As CEO of ME to WE, Joyal’s belief in the transformative potential of social enterprise has taken her from the villages of rural Asia and Africa to the top boardrooms and design showrooms of New York and Los Angeles. Through ME to WE Artisans, Roxanne has created an international market for the intricate handiwork of more than 1,400 indigenous women in Kenya, allowing them to lift their families out of poverty and establish themselves as leaders in their communities. In recognition of her work, the Governor General awarded Ms. Joyal the Order of Canada in 2017.
“Roxanne’s work is an inspiration, and we’re thrilled to have her deliver the keynote address at KEV’s User Group Conference in Toronto,” said Bram Belzberg, Chairman and CEO of KEV Group. “We look forward to hearing her lessons for creating social change and empowering women in the workforce, values that we hold very highly here at KEV, and we think her unique perspective will be a powerful experience for our school board partners.”
KEV Group was founded by two female entrepreneurs, Evelyn Eagle and Kim Vivian-Downs, and providing opportunities to women has always been a core value of the company. Today, 58% of KEV employees are women and 67% of technical team members are women.
KEV Group’s 14th Annual User Group conference takes place from April 11th to 13th, 2018 in Toronto, Ontario. School Cash Suite users from across North America will gather to collaborate with their peers and participate in workshops that will advance their school’s strategic mission and vision.
