Assessing Impact: Helene Gayle on Global Challenges

Helene Gayle, President and CEO, CARE USA; Katherine Pickus, Divisional Vice President, Global Citizenship & Policy, Abbott Laboratories

According to Helene Gayle, we now have many of the necessary tools to solve pressing challenges facing communities around the world. The question, however, is whether we have the will to act as a global community. Empowering women, leveraging multi-sector partnerships, and engaging men as part of the solution can have great effects on global poverty, food shortages, and response to natural disasters – but how can the international development community create sustainable solutions? Helene Gayle will reflect on her nine year tenure as president and CEO of CARE and share her perspectives on what individuals, corporations, and governments can do to have the most impact on those in need. Join The Chicago Council’s Women and Global Development Forum for an expansive look into the top priorities for the solving global development challenges.

The Chicago Council will also live stream this program at 12:15 p.m.:
