Episode 192: Jane Mosbacher Morris
Today, I welcome Jane Mosbacher Morris to the table. She is the Founder and CEO of TO THE MARKET, a company that connects businesses and consumers to ethically made products from around the world.
Before starting To The Market, she served as the Director of Humanitarian Action for the McCain Institute for International Leadership and currently serves on the Institute's Human Trafficking Advisory Council. Prior to joining the Institute, she worked in the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Counterterrorism and in the Secretary's Office of Global Women's Issues. She is also the author of the book, Buy the Change You Want to See: Use Your Purchasing Power to Make the World a Better Place.
She brings such a rich experience and understanding to the table to talk about the power that we have to change the world and our own neighborhoods. We talk about how working in counterterrorism gave her a first hand look and experience with how work had the power to transform women’s lives; how seeing women around the world gave her a great sense of empathy; the biggest problem that women around the world are facing and what we can do collectively to help women around the world.

I think this is a valuable conversation to start having especially with the holidays approaching. We have the power to do something with the most powerful thing we have—our money. I would love for you and I think about that one category that we spend our money on and the one thing we value and then decide to do something about it.
Have you ever thought about how your money is connected to people around the world?
Is there anything that surprised you in this conversation?
What is one company or category that you would like to support that might make a difference?
