The Moment of Lift by Melinda Gates

The Moment of Lift by Melinda Gates was a great read.

What I enjoyed most was gaining insight into the thinking behind a large philanthropic organization. The work that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation does is phenomenal and Melinda Gates does a nice job of informing the reader of thinking behind some of the decisions that are made. What’s most amazing to me is how an organization with such wealth and power needs to remain flexible in order to respond appropriately to the needs of the communities they serve; a lesson we can all learn.

If you have any interest in gender equality issues, I suggest giving this book a read. It’s easy enough and the stories that Gates shares, while heartwrenching at times, are succinct and a valuable addition to any conversation around the need to raise women up.
