“Melinda French Gates announced Monday that she is stepping down from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation next month. French Gates wrote in a post on X that her last day as co-chair of the foundation will be June 7, which she said isn’t a decision she ‘came to lightly.’ Under the terms of her agreement with her co-chair and ex-husband, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, she will have an additional $12.5 billion to commit to her work on behalf of women and families. ‘This is a critical moment for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world – and those fighting to protect and advance equality are in urgent need of support,’ she wrote.” (05/13/24)
