Sister Cities International (SCI) elected Ginger Moxey, Social Entrepreneur of The Bahamas and dedicated citizen diplomat, to its Board of Directors on August 3, 2018 at the 2018 Annual Conference in Aurora, Colorado. Moxey was elected by Sister Cities International’s members: cities, counties, states, and other communities in the United States and abroad.
“Sister Cities International is delighted to have Ginger Moxey, a leading Caribbean entrepreneur, forging meaningful and productive links between the Caribbean and the United States in ways that build mutual trust, understanding and cooperation,” noted Roger- Mark De Souza, President and CEO of Sister Cities International.
Moxey is the founder of two organizations that relate to the work and mission of SCI to connect globally and thrive locally: Immerse Bahamas, a social enterprise, and 700 partners, a non-profit organization. She first became involved with Sister Cities International in 2014 when Immerse Bahamas became a member of Sister Cities International.
She then facilitated the founding of two new sister city relationships: Cat Island, Bahamas with Richton Park, Illinois; and Freeport, Bahamas with Concord, North Carolina. Since then, she has dedicated most of her time to strengthening sister city relationships and developing new ones throughout the Caribbean, and has been relentless in spreading the message and unique opportunities that sister city relationships provide for business, cultural, tourism, educational and humanitarian exchanges.
Moxey shared, “I am delighted to have been elected at the Annual Sister Cities Conference held in Aurora, Colorado – a historical event that demonstrated the diversity of SCI.
“I was pleased to witness significant focus on next generation leaders, social entrepreneurship, and the international community (including the Caribbean), as well as the concrete, actionable strategies presented to build our sister city programs and grow the network. The future of SCI is bright!”
Moxey is the first Caribbean-native to serve on the Board of Directors of Sister Cities International, and continues to serve as the Regional Representative for the Caribbean. She is also a member of the Special Projects and Membership Board committees.
Moxey has indicated that her efforts to advance SCI’s mission will be geared toward strengthening global memberships; developing alliances with shared visions; and providing an effective conduit that allows people throughout the network to seamlessly connect.
