Live Talks Los Angeles is a series of on-stage conversations featuring writers, actors, musicians, filmmakers, comedians, artists, chefs, scientists, and thought leaders in business.
On May 7, Melinda Gates joins Live Talks LA to discuss her impressive career and her new book, The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World. Gates is a philanthropist, businesswoman, and global advocate for women and girls. As the co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Melinda sets the direction and priorities of the world’s largest philanthropy. She is also the founder of Pivotal Ventures, an investment and incubation company working to drive social progress for women and families in the United States. For the last twenty years, 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, invest in women.
In The Moment of Lift, Melinda traces her awakening to the link between women’s empowerment and the health of societies. She shows some of the tremendous opportunities that exist right now to “turbo-charge” change. She also provides simple and effective ways each one of us can make a difference. Gates will be donating the proceeds from this book to charity.
