Forbes #4 Most Powerful Woman
We couldn’t be more thrilled to announce that Melinda Gates, one of the world’s most powerful women, will be joining the 2016 GLS Summit faculty. Here’s why Forbes listed her as the fourth most powerful woman in the world:
Melinda Gates has cemented her dominance in philanthropy and global development to the tune of $4.2-billion (R57.5-billion) in giving in 2015 and more than $36.7-billion (R502-bilion) in grant payments since she founded the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation with her husband in 2000. Her work has inspired other big donors and has changed the way funders think about effective philanthropy: highly targeted campaigns coupled with data-driven monitoring and global collaboration. As the woman with her name on the door, Gates decides the direction of the organisation and reviews the results. Much of her attention is now focused on championing investments in women and girls around the world.
