Holy Child Spirit Honoree: Meghan McCormick
Meghan graduated from Holy Child School at Rosemont in 2003. After completing high school at Episcopal Academy, Meghan attended Georgetown University, earning a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration and a minor in Theater and Performance Studies in 2011. Meghan then joined the Peace Corps which took her to Kindia, Guinea, for two years as a Community Economic Development Volunteer. In the Peace Corps, Meghan worked with the Guinean Association for the Development of Private Enterprise, focusing on social impact innovation and social entrepreneurship. Her passion for empowering West African entrepreneurs took root during her years in the Peace Corps.
While volunteering in Guinea, Meghan founded Dare to Innovate, a non-profit youth-led movement to end unemployment in West Africa through investments in the entrepreneurial ecosystems that ignite social change. Today, the organization has trained over 8,000 young entrepreneurs and distributed $400,000 in seed capital to the participants. In 2017, Meghan spun OZÉ out of Dare to Innovate. OZÉ is a for-profit company that builds digital tools and networks to help small business owners thrive.
Meghan holds an MBA from MIT Sloan School of Management and is currently pursuing an MPA from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. After graduation, she intends to return to Ghana to expand OZÉ into Africa’s leading technology company. Meghan is grateful to Holy Child School at Rosemont, whom she credits for inspiring her commitment to social justice through their educational philosophy of Actions Not Words.
