On this month’s episode of Leadership Reimagined, “Championing the Future of Children,” we were pleased to speak with Henrietta Fore, Executive Director at UNICEF, an extraordinary leader who is truly changing the world for children and the underprivileged. During this global pandemic, we ask for your support to promote and celebrate those frontline leaders, such as Henrietta Fore, who are tirelessly working to make our planet a safer place for all – especially for the next generation, our children.

Episode 17: “Championing the Future of Children”

Prior to being named the seventh Executive Director at UNICEF, Henrietta had a two track career – In the corporate world as CEO and Chair of a manufacturing and investment company, and prior in public service: Henrietta was the 37th Director of the United States Mint in the U.S. Department of Treasury; served as Under Secretary of State for Management, the Chief Operating Officer for the U.S. Department of State; Administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID); and as Director of United States Foreign Assistance. We would like to highlight that Henrietta was the first woman to serve in each of these roles.

“There is a myth out there that children are not really affected by COVID-19. At UNICEF we see that in any emergency children suffer first and the worst.”

With more than four decades of experience supporting economic development, education, health, humanitarian assistance and disaster relief, Henrietta discusses the immeasurable impact COVID-19 is having on the future of children, economically and socially.

It is with great privilege we present to you “Championing the Future of Children” with Henrietta Fore.
