Watson Institute Senior Fellow Pamela Reeves hosts a discussion with Michele Sullivan, the President of the Caterpillar Foundation.

Under Michele Sullivan's leadership, the Caterpillar Foundation has grown to a global and strategic firm, focusing on Corporate Social Innovation. This strategy places the human need first, not as an afterthought of profit. The Foundation has also begun to focus on policy work as Sullivan and her team believe sustainable changes in policy are necessary to making real change happen. Sullivan recently served as a U.S. delegate to the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women.
