Mary Mackenzie: The Innovator

Long before Steve Jobs and Jeff Bezos, Mary Mackenzie was an innovator. In the 1950s, she refused to sit by and watch as women were forced out of their jobs because they were pregnant. Her answer was to open a store offering professional clothes for women who were expecting. Her innovative outfits helped countless women stay employed.

Mary loved solving tough problems and helping other people. After she sold Motherhood Maternity, which had grown to 270 stores,
she wondered how she could use philanthropy to continue to make a difference.
