Carter joins the Global Entrepreneurs Council, a group of leading innovators helping the United Nations Foundation helping the United Nations identify opportunities in the UN’s key areas of women and girls, global health, energy and climate, and population. Other inductees in the two-year program include Neil Blumenthal, Co-CEO and Co-Founder of Warby Parker, and Barbara Pierce Bush, CEO and Co-Founder, Global Health Corps.
Carter speaks at the Social Good Summit in New York City. The Summit is a two-day conference examining the impact of technology and new media on social good initiatives around the world. This year’s theme #2030NOW, asks the question, “What type of world do I want to live in by the year 2030?”
There’s a social call built into a lot of the businesses we are seeing. The partnership between entrepreneurs and the UN…there’s a lot we can do together. We’re probably at step one of many steps but it’s a great start for the UN.
