How do you change the world?
It begins with one person, often one ordinary woman, who sees a need, finds a way to fill it and ends up doing extraordinary things to make a positive difference.
We are veteran broadcasters and journalists who started The Women's Eye website and Radio Show to shine the light on these special impacters and bring them to you. 20 Women Changemakers features twenty of these remarkable women who will amaze you with their ideas, fortitude and grit.
They tell you how they did it, and how you, too, can take action!
Stacey Gualandi is a host/interviewer for The Women’s Eye Network Radio Show and website. She is an award-winning television news correspondent. Her most recent position was Las Vegas-based entertainment and news reporter at the ABC affiliate, KTNV Channel 13, where she won an Emmy in the Breaking/Spot News category for her story, “Candlelight Vigil Car Crash”. Her credits include the syndicated news program Inside Edition where she was a national correspondent, The TV Guide Network, Hallmark Channel, and Extra.
Doniece Sandoval is the CEO and founder of Lava Mae featured in 20 Women Changemakers. Driven by a fierce belief that everyone has a right to dignity and the knowledge that access to showers and sanitation are in serious short supply for the homeless, Doniece was compelled to start Lava Mae. She has orchestrated marketing, PR and development for both private and nonprofit organizations including ZERO1: The Art & Technology Network, San Jose Museum of Art, Wilson McHenry Company, Informix, DoubleClick, Toysrus.com, McGuire & Company for Coca Cola and ACA Joe among others. Her passion is finding unique solutions to problems that matter to her. Homelessness has been on her radar for quite some time but she was at a loss as to how to truly help—until she passed a young woman on the street crying over and over that she’d never be clean. Lava Mae is Doniece’s answer.
