Architects of Change Monthly Highlight: Graced By Grit

An architect of change (AOC) is someone who challenges what is, imagines what can be, and moves humanity forward.

Meet Graced by Grit founders, Kimberly Caccavo and Katherine (Kate) Nowlan, and their highly­ technical athletic clothing line designed to empower and keep women safe. In honor of San Diego slain teen, Chelsea King, all of their clothes include safety whistles and a place to hold one’s cell phone. These amazing women show the benefit of stepping out of one’s comfort zone to embrace strength in the face of adversity. As Ms. Caccavo and Ms. Nowlan tell us, “Every woman has experienced that difficult moment that she thinks might just break her. How we make it through those moments defines us.”

Watch Carly Tucker ’18 and Marlene Vollbrechthausen ’18 interview Ms. Caccavo and Ms. Nowlan in this Architect of Change Monthly Highlight.
