“Do Change” with Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

One of the best things about working at Chef is seeing how our customers use technology to create innovations and make a real difference through their work. This feeling was never stronger than it was at ChefConf this year, where Sue Taylor, the CIO of The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, shared how she sees technology driving real change and positive impact through the work of the foundation, and companies and organizations they support.

In this video from her ChefConf keynote, Sue shares the mission of the Gates foundation and the areas of focus for the organization to help people globally improve the quality of their lives. Finally, Sue looks at how technology and innovation drive radically improved outcomes, in healthcare, education, and other key areas of concern around the world. I invite you to take a few minutes to watch Sue’s inspiring presentation, and to learn more about the work of the foundation at http://gatesfoundation.org.
