CEO and founder of Solera Molly Ashby (center) received the Women of Concern Leadership Award at the 13th Annual Women of Concern Luncheon in New York in June. The lunch was the most successful in Concern’s history, raising more than $450,000 for Concerns programs fighting poverty in 29 countries.

“One thing I have seen while getting to know Concern over the past year, is that they do all the great work in the hardest and toughest places. And that is guts,” she said.

“We at my firm have a saying, which is the highest praise, when something is really intense and committed and fantastic it’s fiercely beautiful. And that’s what Concern brings; fierce beauty takes over. And that is why they are changing the world.” ♦
