This month, the Clinton Foundation has shared inspiring stories of "ceiling breakers" from around the world.
Chelsea Clinton, Vice Chair of the Clinton Foundation, works alongside her parents, President Bill Clinton and Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton, to drive the vision and work of the Clinton Foundation. Over the past 13 years, the Foundation has built partnerships with great purpose among governments, businesses, NGOs, and individuals everywhere to strengthen health systems in developing countries, fight climate change, expand economic opportunity in Africa, Latin America, and the United States, increase opportunity for women and girls around the world, and help Americans live healthier lives. Additionally, Clinton Global Initiative members have made more than 2,800 Commitments to Action to improve more than 430 million lives in more than 180 countries.
Chelsea’s work at the Clinton Foundation emphasizes improving global and domestic health, creating service opportunities, and empowering the next generation of leaders. Chelsea focuses especially on the Foundation's health programs, including the Clinton Health Access Initiative, which strengthens health care and access to lifesaving services in the developing world; the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, which fights childhood obesity in the United States; and the Clinton Health Matters Initiative, which addresses preventable disease in the United States. She also established – and continues to lead – the Clinton Foundation Day of Action program, which identifies and organizes meaningful service opportunities for Foundation staff, friends, and partners and for the wider Foundation community. To help advance the full participation of women and girls around the world, Chelsea and Secretary Clinton, co-lead the Foundation’s newest initiative, No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project. As one of the strongest champions of the Clinton Global Initiative University, Chelsea works to empower the next generation of change makers to take action on some of the world's most urgent challenges.
Chelsea previously worked at McKinsey & Company and Avenue Capital.
Chelsea also serves on the boards of the Clinton Health Access Initiative, the School of American Ballet, the Africa Center and the Weill Cornell Medical College. She is the Co-Chair of the Advisory Board of the Of Many Institute at NYU. Chelsea holds a B.A. from Stanford, a MPhil from Oxford, a MPH from Columbia's Mailman School of Public Health, and a Doctorate in International Relations from Oxford University.
She, her husband Marc, and their daughter Charlotte live in New York City.
