CEO and founder of Millie
Chelsea Brown is founder & CEO of Millie Inc., a company that offers women transformative experiences through a speaker series, Millie Speaks, and female-focused travel, Millie Travels. Chelsea is also VP Development & Operations at Clarity Management Group, a boutique consulting firm specializing in high net worth risk management in the banking sector.
A Toronto native, Chelsea lived in the U.K., USA and Canada as a child. This instilled within her a desire to not only explore the world, but to make a difference in it. From her time as a mentor at Girls E-Mentorship Innovation (GEM), to establishing Millie, to the organizations and innovators she supports: Chelsea's passion has always been championing women to unlock their potential. She currently sits on social enterprise Sitti Soap's International Advisory Board.
Chelsea sponsored the Canadian premiere of the film TRAFFICKED, collaborating with Free-Them, a non-profit that raises awareness and funds to abolish human trafficking in Canada. Chelsea also sponsored the TIFF premiere of SKIN and HUMAN CAPITAL, two films produced by the female-led Maven Pictures.
Through Millie, Chelsea also funded scholarships for three women, putting them through Turquoise Mountain artisan training – the first women to ever participate in the Jordan program. A turning point in Chelsea's life was her introduction, and her efforts to help develop, The Pin Project, an initiative that unlocked refugee talent and encouraged long-term self-reliance through artisan crafts. This experience paved the way for Millie’s first development trip to Jordan and it is how Chelsea came to know the women of the Jerash Refugee camp and Sitti. It also provided clarity: "only by forging relationships with people across the world can we improve it."
Chelsea is an avid traveler, with a passion to explore the world. But her reasons for establishing Millie transcend travel. Millie embraces mindful travel: a new approach that nurtures global consciousness founded on compassion, acceptance and love.
