How Robert is building a better working world
"A better working world starts with a more educated one. Being a part of our Education team allows me to confidently know that what I do, day-in and day-out, is contributing in some manner to improving educational access, quality, and/or outcomes.
Having been involved with our team since its inception, I can take a long perspective on our work’s impact. I have seen us tackle and have impact against seemingly intractable social and economic issues."
