During the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference 2010, over 10,000 Microsoft partners and employees will convene in Washington, D.C. to hear from Microsoft key executives and presidents, as well as brainstorm innovative solutions in the IT sector to boost global economy and connectivity. This year, they will have the unique opportunity to be inspired by President Bill Clinton.
President Bill Clinton served the United States of America for eight years during a time of unprecedented prosperity and change. Now, President Clinton is a powerful voice for progress as he shares his unique insights and observations with audiences around the world. President Clinton’s public speeches describe the challenge of globalization, emphasize our growing interdependence, and point the way toward a common future based on shared goals and values.
President Clinton’s Foundation:
The William J. Clinton Foundation was founded by President Bill Clinton with the mission to strengthen the capacity of people in the United States and throughout the world to meet the challenges of global interdependence. Today the Foundation works around the world to improve lives through several initiatives:
- The Clinton HIV/AIDS Initiative (now the Clinton Health Access Initiative, a separate nonprofit organization) is helping 2 million people living with HIV/AIDS access lifesaving drugs.
- The Clinton Climate Initiative, the Clinton Hunter Development Initiative, and the Clinton Giustra Sustainable Growth Initiative — are applying a business-oriented approach worldwide to fight climate change and develop sustainable economic growth in Africa and Latin America.
- The Clinton Global Initiative brings together global leaders to devise and implement innovative solutions to some of the world’s most pressing issues.
- In the U.S., the Foundation is working to combat the alarming rise in childhood obesity through the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, and is helping individuals and families succeed and small businesses grow.
