Saturday’s National Conference Call with UNICEF’s Executive Director Dr. Tony Lake

Join RESULTS’ National Conference Call at 1:00 pm CDT on Saturday, May 14 to hear from special guest Dr. Tony Lake, who brings more than 45 years of public service experience to his position as the executive director of UNICEF. Dr. Lake served as a senior foreign policy advisor to the campaign of President Barack Obama, and he also served as national security advisor to President Bill Clinton.
At UNICEF, Dr. Lake has spearheaded a renewed focus on equity to ensure that the poorest of the poor are not left behind in the race to meet the Millennium Development Goals. New research from UNICEF demonstrates that focusing on the very poor is not only the right thing to do, it is also cost-effective and yields the most impact. This approach runs contrary to the conventional wisdom that reaching the poorest and most marginalized populations is too expensive. In an editorial, the New York Times called this equity approach "counterintuitive and compelling." Join us in Austin at the monthly Global Team conference call, Saturday May 14 at 1:00 pm CDT to hear more from Dr. Lake on his vision for UNICEF's leadership.
