Script Details

Melinda Gates is one of the best known, most admired women in the world.

As co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Melinda feels a special call to serve those who have no voice in society. She describes her philanthropy as “faith in action” -- and that faith expresses itself in love of neighbor.

Melinda grew up in Dallas, Texas and attended Ursuline Academy, an all-girls Catholic school that emphasized a life of service.

As a high school student, Melinda remembers tutoring underprivileged children in a nearby public school where she confronted the heartbreaking reality that -- as she put it: “A short stretch of road separated the kids who were getting ahead from the kids who were falling behind.”

Melinda graduated from Duke University where she earned degrees in computer science and business and in 1987, joined Microsoft as the youngest new hire and the only woman in its first class of MBA’s. When she left a decade later with the birth of her first daughter, Melinda was general manager of information products, overseeing 300 employees.

In the early 1990s, Melinda and Bill took a trip to Africa that gave them their first sustained look at extreme poverty. It is this trip that would inspire them to make philanthropy the cause of their lives and have agreed that the principle “All lives have equal value” would form the moral core of their giving.

And so, The Gates Foundation focuses globally on fighting poverty and disease and domestically on improving public education.

Melinda is an outspoken advocate for women and girls – and forms a special bond with the mothers she meets in developing countries. She says: “There is no difference in what we want for our children; the only difference is in our ability to give it to them.”

Please welcome Melinda Gates to the Summit.
