Hero - Michelle Guelbart

Hero - Michelle Guelbart

When MeetGreen had a team training on human trafficking, it was a tough conversation about an even tougher issue. We knew, however, that our work on the road, in hotels and meeting venues gave us an opportunity to be part of the solution.

Our hero this month Michelle Guelbart, Director of Private Sector Engagement, ECPATUSA, has had those hard conversations daily for years and she is still as passionate and committed as the day I met her. That is a hero!


In a recent interview, Michelle shared her insight on the following questions:


  • Has your industry changed dramatically in the past five years?
  • What changes do you anticipate in the next five years? Are there any trends that concern you?
  • Which stakeholders are the driving force in stopping human trafficking initiatives?
  • What is the biggest obstacle still to be overcome?
  • How can we, as a community and individuals, get involved to make a difference?
