How Robert is building a better working world

"A better working world starts with health, education and opportunity. We have had an impact on seemingly intractable social and economic issues in the education sector. Now my role is expanding to work on equally critical social issues including pandemic recovery and economic development - working with our clients to help ensure equity is considered as progress is made.”
