Roberta Ventura left her twenty-year career in Investment Banking and Asset Management in 2016, to run the Social Enterprise she founded, SEP Jordan, on a full-time basis along with her husband Stefano. SEP Jordan is a fashion and lifestyle brand, which blends Italian style with the finest Middle-Eastern craftsmanship, which was set up to bring back dignity and pride to refugee camps. SEP Jordan’s mission is to bring thousands of refugees above the poverty line, thanks to their own skill and talent, through employment. Roberta is a strong believer and advocate of refugees’ right to employment, education and empowerment – the key instruments to reach confidence, determination and self-sufficiency.
