Description

Philanthropist and co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Melinda Gates discusses her new book, “The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World.” Believing that all lives have equal value, Melinda and her husband, Bill Gates, have donated more than $50 billion to improving equity, health and education in the United States and around the world. Through her work at the foundation over the last 15 years, Melinda has seen firsthand that empowering women and girls can bring transformational improvements in the health and prosperity of families, communities and societies. “How can we summon a moment of lift for human beings?” Melinda asks. “And especially for women because when you lift up women, you lift up humanity.”

I'm thought with this conversation most Illuminating! Melinda Gates was actually open enough to talk about her process she's dealing with overwhelming problems in the world. as she says she is Catholic and it took her 2 years to wrestle with whether the foundation would give women in the developing World contraceptives. in the end she did. and I believe many millions of women will benefit by that decision. she also attmits that she only got White Privilege five years ago. and she makes sure when there are jobs at her foundation that women and Men of color are in the mix. I thought she was just an extremely interesting, educated and measured woman. I liked her a lot. And I'm sure I will enjoy her book when I read it.
