Profile

Guided by the belief that every life has equal value, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation works to help all people lead healthy, productive lives. In developing countries, it focuses on improving people’s health and giving them the chance to lift themselves out of hunger and extreme poverty. In the United States, it seeks to ensure that all people—especially those with the fewest resources—have access to the opportunities they need to succeed in school and life. Based in Seattle, the foundation is led by CEO Mark Suzman and co-chair William H. Gates Sr., under the direction of Bill and Melinda Gates and Warren Buffett.

Our Program Teams are Global Health, Global Development, Global Policy, Advocacy & Communications, Global Growth and Opportunity, and US Programs. They research and make grant & investment proposals that are aligned with a program strategy. They are responsible for ongoing management of grants and investments.

Our Operating Teams composed of Legal, Finance, and Grants & Contracts Management support program teams to design, create & execute grant & investment agreements. Our Human Resources, Global Digital Technology (IT), and Global Facilities, Events, and Travel teams provide the staff, technology and logistics that enable program teams to run effectively and work smartly around the world.

We strive to create a peak career experience. We know that by creating an environment for our employees to personally and professionally thrive and contribute at their highest potential, we will have maximum impact towards our missions.

Our missions are the outcomes that help us achieve our vision of seeing a world where every person has the opportunity to live a healthy, productive life:
* Ensure more children and young people survive and thrive
* Empower the poorest, especially women and girls, to transform their lives
* Combat infectious diseases that particularly affect the poorest
