Earlier this month, Karen had the honor and privilege of being invited to Buckingham Palace by Her Majesty The Queen to attend the Commonwealth Diaspora Reception. This reception recognized individuals who have made a positive contribution to business, community, and culture. Karen was recognized for her commitment and influence in working to improve the quality of childcare for the world’s most vulnerable children.

This 65-year tradition is an important and symbolic event that unifies influential individuals from nearly every geographical region, religion and culture. The Commonwealth organization embraces diversity among its “52 countries and almost 2.5 billion people.”

Throughout the evening, Karen met dignitaries and leaders from around the world, and was honored to share a moment with the Queen.
