Stephanie Woollard founded Seven Women, an organization which educates, trains and provides employment pathways for disabled and marginalized women in Nepal. 
 
Stephanie began Seven Women at age 22 after meeting seven disabled women working in a tin shed in Kathmandu.
 
These seven women were struggling to make a living in the face of harsh discrimination.
 
With her last $200, Steph paid for trainers to teach the women how to produce products for sale locally and abroad – and Seven Women was born.
 
In 2016, she was made a Rotary International Peace Fellow and was a recipient of the Rotary International Responsible Business Award presented at the United Nations in New York.
 
Stephanie was a nominee for Australian of the Year in 2016 and was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) for her philanthropy and humanitarian work in Nepal.
 
She has a Masters in Peace & Conflict Research from Uppsala University, Sweden.
