In a passionate conversation during a mastermind group for entrepreneurs, an idea morphed into a jubilant collaboration we call TheCompassProject. Although we were a group of politically engaged, disconcerted and motivated women, we still wondered how we could be part of a solution. How to tap into the national discourse? How to give back and make a real and quantifiable difference? How to feel a greater sense of connection? Thus began the collaboration of Sandra Lewis, Jewelry Designer and Sue Parham, product manager and a host of other believers willing to dedicate their time to make TheCompassProject a reality.
Principal Designer, Co-Founder
believes that our best is exactly what the world deserves and needs from each of us, and that a world filled with beauty provides therapy for our soul. She followed her north star which took her from being a high end jewelry designer for the likes of Neiman Marcus and Barneys to creating symbols to connect people to their sense of purpose and each other.
Director of Operations, Co-Founder
Sue believes “many hands make light work”, and that TheCompassProject can impact our future positively by bringing our collective financial contributions together to forge a new era. A recent trip to a refugee camp in Rwanda awakened Sue to the depth of hope in the face of need and heightened her awareness of our responsibility to support mankind in need.
