I am deeply, deeply honored to co-lead the Financial Inclusion Working Group for President Clinton and his CGI America meeting for 2012, held June 6-8th in Chicago, IL. During the Friday lunch Plenary Session I spoke on a session around "opportunity," which was led by Clinton Foundation and CGI board member Chelsea Clinton. Here I stand with my friend and politcal hero former President Bill Clinton during CGI America.
You can see the entire luncheon plenary session here. Share it with friends and colleagues, and let me know what you think.
Onward and with HOPE
