From our CEO

The Foundation uniquely uses the combined power of journalism and the law to build global awareness of some of the most critical issues currently faced by humanity. We work with many different stakeholders – from civil society leaders to purpose-driven professionals – to inspire collective leadership, and to find scalable solutions that can help shape a more prosperous world where no one is left behind.

I would like to invite you to read our organisational overview, which provides a snapshot of the breadth, scope, impact and legacy of the Foundation’s work – past and present.
