IMAGINE Leaders – Leslie Beasley

For more than 25 years, Leslie has led both profit and non-profit teams.
Prior to MiracleFoundation, she was the Founder and CEO of Open Arms, a social enterprise that provides living-wage employment to women survivors of war. She was also a founding board member for Work for Life, an organization that assists African entrepreneurs in launching sustainable businesses. What’s more, she’s a skilled big hearted communicator who knows how to connect with others to help them bethe difference the world needs.
