Melinda Gates is now in the business of righting those same inequities she saw as a young girl–and more. As co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation with her husband, Bill, and father-in-law, Bill Sr., she is working toward the mandate to give “every person the chance to live a healthy productive life.”

Bill and Melinda Gates want their kids to have “their own lives,” yet they also want them to develop an understanding of the inequities in the world. Right now, that means taking them on trips while giving them the time to make their own decisions.
