MSI-US welcomes two new board members with unique entrepreneurial backgrounds and profoundly personal connections to our mission of providing women and girls around the world with access to life-changing contraception and safe abortion care.

Alexis Meredith is Marketing Manager at Facebook and Instagram, where she helps nonprofits and small businesses grow their online presence. Her career focus is scaled marketing for technology companies, previously working at Epsilon, a leading marketing agency with clients such as Google and Apple, and Brilliant Earth, a retailer of conflict-free diamonds.

In 2008, Alexis spent three months in Sierra Leone working with MSI as a research assistant and has been a passionate advocate for our work ever since. With three generations of family members involved in women’s reproductive health, she feels deeply about MSI’s mission.

Owen Rogers is a Designer, Partner and Client Relationship Executive at IDEO. He works across IDEO on global initiatives, spending his time at the cross-section of brand, business and organizational design. Owen brings his creative expertise to an array of different sectors. Since joining IDEO in 1998, he has led several core initiatives.

Owen’s father was the medical director at an MSI clinic in London for over 20 years. Owen fondly recalls spending time at the clinic after school and during holidays, where he met MSI’s dedicated staff and clients. His passion for our mission has continued, and he mentors the sexual and reproductive healthcare practice at IDEO.org.

MSI-US President Marjorie Newman-Williams said: “We are delighted to have Alexis and Owen join our board, and I look forward to their insight and guidance in the years to come. Their experience and true passion for our mission are welcome additions to our team and will undoubtedly help MSI-US grow our base of supporters committed to women’s reproductive choice and rights.”
