Joey Adler, President and CEO of Diesel Canada, is an innovative entrepreneur and passionate humanitarian seeking to reinvent the business of philanthropy through groundbreaking sustainable models.

Her latest vision — Industrial Revolution II (IRII) — is not just a new environmentally and socially responsible business model for apparel manufacturing but a complete paradigm shift designed to raise the standard of living for the industry’s workers and their communities.

IRII began with the recent launch of a state-of-the-art garment factory to produce high-end clothing and improve the lives of its employees in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. The hope is that this first project will be a model for the entire industry and take root globally.

Joey’s history of service to others is impressive. For example, in 2005 she set up the ONEXONE Foundation, whose mission is to improve the lives of disadvantaged children around the world with programs dedicated to the fundamental pillars: food/nutrition, health, water, education, play. With important initiatives operating in South Africa, Rwanda, Kenya, Haiti and in North America, ONEXONE’s reach is wide. The foundation’s success has been due in large part to Joey’s ability to build partnerships with local communities as well as with major corporations.

IRII is the just latest of Joey’s efforts to help people in Haiti, one of the hemisphere’s poorest nations. An active member of the Clinton Task Force on Haiti, she made sure that, after the devastating earthquake in 2010, ONEXONE team members were on the first non-military flight to land. They delivered $5 million worth of medicine and medical equipment. ONEXONE remains active in Haiti and helped fund the construction of a state-of-the-art paediatric ward in the new Partners In Health hospital in Mirebalais.
