The world has changed a lot over the past 100 years. It is exciting to see how far our next generation will take us. Our founder and executive director, Elizabeth Newton, was recently featuredalongside global changemakers in celebration of Steelcase's 100th Anniversary. Check out her dream.
Here is an excerpt from the story, in Elizabeth's words: "The U.S. philanthropic sector is growing and will require informed, engaged philanthropists in the century ahead. In addition, we are living in an increasingly interconnected world. Be it in business or the social sector, we must prepare the next generation of informed global citizens who address global challenges. I believe that the key to creating this change is education – education for U.S. teens that is focused on philanthropy and the broader challenges faced in resource poor areas around the world and education for youth in such resource poor, often remote areas – areas that lack basic clean water, systems, structures, and materials to support necessary primary and secondary education. I envision a world where U.S. youth are open to balancing personal realities with those outside their own culture and are educated to be active global citizens aiming to reduce the cycle of poverty worldwide."
