Judith Rodin is president of the Rockefeller Foundation.  She was previously president of the University of Pennsylvania and the first woman to lead an Ivy League institution.  In four years at the Rockefeller Foundation, Dr. Rodin recalibrated its focus for the 21st century.  Today, the Foundation works to ensure that more people can tap into globalization’s benefits while developing stronger resilience to its risks.  Foundation initiatives include efforts to mobilize an agricultural revolution in sub-Saharan Africa, bolster economic security for American workers, inform more equitable, sustainable transportation policies in the United States, assure access to affordable, high-quality health systems in developing countries, and help vulnerable communities cope with the impacts of imminent and worsening climate change.  For more information, visit
