Former fashion CEO finds a new passion in helping others
The Globe and Mail, by Marlene Habib
Even fracturing her right ankle twice last year couldn’t break Joey Adler’s spirit.
Recently retired as president and chief executive officer of fashion brand Diesel Canada, Ms. Adler is now a full-time “social entrepreneur” and philanthropist with the OneXOne Foundation, and into her fourth term as a councillor in her home community of Estérel, Que.
She passionately believes we all have the power to make a difference in the life of at least one human being – whether it’s sharing water and a cold street corner with a homeless person, or feeding a hungry child, among the multitude of ways she has touched the lives of others over the years.
