For the last twenty years, our founder, Melinda French Gates, has been on a mission to find solutions for people with the most urgent needs, wherever they live.
Throughout this journey, one thing has become increasingly clear to her: If you want to lift a society up, stop holding women down. Equality can't wait.
In Melinda's words,
"How can we summon a moment of lift for human beings - and especially for women? Because when you lift up women, you lift up humanity."
Melinda shares this journey in her first book, The Moment of Lift, launching April 23, 2019.
