Women Business Leaders on Faith and the Workplace

Three women business leaders shared their vision during the 2018 Global Business & Interfaith Peace Awards and Symposium in Seoul, South Korea.

Anna McCoy is Senior Business Strategist and CEO of The EBW Foundation. Anna is also a principal and chief strategy and global officer of UrbanAmerica, a private real estate equity and development firm she co-founded in 1998 with her husband of 18 years. She managed real estate transactions in excess of $2 billion and has written three books, teaching women about financial literacy and empowering women globally to step into their greatness.

Former Dell Entrepreneur-in-Residence, Ingrid Vanderveldt, has the audacious goal of by 2020 empowering a billion women from all faiths to work together to achieve more, give more and accomplish more. She believes that the relationship between women in business and this mission is sustainable and helps women leaders worldwide to pursue unity, love and peace.

Inspired by her own faith and working among the blind in Tibet, Shiyin CAI founded Dialogue in the Dark in China. Through activities such as supporting the first blind runner to complete the Boston Marathon, she is changing society’s prejudices against blind/deaf and all other marginalized groups, and providing job opportunities with dignity to the marginalized.
