The Speakers

Theresa Carrington
Founder & CEO of Ten by Three

Theresa Carrington, founder and CEO of Ten by Three, recognizes that the key to helping people emerge from poverty to financial independence is igniting their entrepreneurial spirit. Theresa’s vision launched Ten by Three in 2004. Her ingenuity is the spark for the organization’s innovative and transparent approach to ending poverty. Theresa is the recipient of an honorary Doctorate of Humanities from Washington University St. Louis, Ghanaian Chief Paul Asanah Agoo enskinned her as the Queen Mother of Development in Zaare/Nyariga Traditional Area,  Theresa has received the prestigious St. Louis Award, been named as one of St. Louis’s Most Influential Women; Chosen as Humanitarian of the Year by Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville; and YWCA Nonprofit Leader for her opinion-leading perspective and unique approach to poverty reduction – to name a few. Before starting Ten by Three, Theresa upheld transparency standards as a journalist who achieved numerous honors, including 13 Emmy awards, over the course of her 20+ year career. She now applies her journalism skills in sharing the stories of determination, inspiration and joy of Ten by Three artisans from around the world all while reminding us how, through human connection, one person can truly change the world

We believe human connection creates peace.
