• Four years, two wars, and one very unlikely female-led social enterprise.
• Marilyn Garson was an experienced aid professional who created jobs at the edge of war. In 2011, she was invited to move to the Gaza Strip to lead an ambitious Palestinian team. Gaza would challenge much of what Marilyn knew about aid and conflict, Palestine and justice. Who really lives behind the Gaza blockade, and what can we do about it? Marilyn speaks from experience – including her work as a member of the UN emergency team that operated shelters in Gaza through the war of 2014.
• As a Jew with skin on both sides, Gaza required Marilyn to dig deep into the content of her own beliefs. She speaks in the unifying language of human rights and law, where she believes that solutions will be found.
• Marilyn Garson grew up in Halifax, Canada studying political science and philosophy at the University of Toronto. In 1998, she began creating jobs in communities affected by war, launching locally owned social enterprises or working with small businesses in Cambodia, Afghanistan and Pakistan, and elsewhere. In 2011 she received an offer to work and live in the Gaza Strip as the Economic Director of Mercy Corps’ Gaza programme, and then as a consultant to the office of UNRW’s then-Gaza director. In that capacity she joined the UN emergency team that remained in Gaza to shelter displaced people through the 2014 war. She is the proud co-founder of the GGateway social enterprise, whose (female) leaders were recognized by TIME magazine as emerging entrepreneurial leaders.
