SPEO’s 2022 Wallenberg Spirit Award Recipient, Renee Demichiei-Farrow

At SPEO’s 2022 Annual Opportunities Forum on February 8, 2022, Coreen Casadei presented Renee Demichiei-Farrow with this year’s Wallenberg Spirit Award. This award is presented annually to a member-selected recipient at the Opportunities Forum.

The award recognizes a member who epitomizes the spirit of Raoul Wallenberg: “for making the lives of others better; for lifting up others because it is the right thing to do, not because the world is watching; for simply helping others because they are human beings, not because they are of a certain race”.

Thanks Renee for all you do for SPEO!
