Women farmers lack access to the same opportunities as their male counterparts. That’s why we support innovations and initiatives designed to ensure women have access to the market, financial and networking tools they need to thrive. Here are some examples!
At the same time, I would like to recognize and thank our outgoing Chief Operating Officer and Chief Legal Officer, Connie Collingsworth, who leaves a remarkable legacy of more than 20 years of service at the foundation.
Today, I’m excited to welcome Chief Legal Officer Lauren Bright, Chief Operating Officer Shana Tarbell, and Chief Human Resources Officer Sonia Vora to @gatesfoundation’s Executive Leadership Team – I look forward to learning from and working with each of you.

Gender inequality perpetuates the AIDS pandemic.
Unequal power dynamics between women & men and harmful gender norms increase the HIV vulnerability of women & girls in all their diversity.

On March 8, I encourage you to be part of an evening of inspiring stories and discussions. Details on how to join the event are below: twitter.com/DiscoverGates/…
