Peter Buffett – Musician and Philanthropist
Today I was pleased to speak with musician and philanthropist, Peter Buffett, about the work he and his wife Jennifer are doing to change the lives of girls and women on this planet through the NoVo Foundation. I connected to Peter via the Atlanta Girls School as he will be performing in Atlanta this Sunday (January 30) at Symphony Hall. Here is the link to that event for those of you in the Atlanta area.
As I mentioned in the interview, The Girl Effect, funded by Nike Foundation and had a big impact on me as I was launching this site a year ago. I wanted to reach the many men and women doing this work to educate and support the lives of women globally. I admire Peter and Jennifer greatly for their work and support. I would have loved to have Jennifer on the call yesterday as well, but she was traveling with Nike to see the work being done in the field.
In our conversation, Peter and I discuss everything from the role of men in this work to how everyone, regardless of social or financial status, can be involved.
I hope to continue sharing more stories of their work and global support to women’s project in the future.
The next interview I will be posting is with Darcy Winslow, who has spearheaded Global Women’s Brand and Sustainability for Nike and has served on the Foundation board as well. That conversation is a great follow up to my talk with Peter.
