Brown School researcher joins Clinton Global Initiative

Michal Grinstein-Weiss, PhD, associate professor at the Brown School and associate director of the Center for Social Development at Washington University in St. Louis, has been asked to join the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) and to participate in its Financial Opportunity Working Group. CGI, founded by former U.S. President Bill Clinton, is a worldwide community of leaders dedicated to building a strong, sustainable global community. CGI brings together leaders from the business, foundation, nonprofit and government sectors to develop innovative strategies and programs to promote U.S. economic growth, improve the country’s competitiveness in the global arena, and increase social mobility for all segments of the U.S. population. The CGI Financial Opportunity Working Group focuses on developing sustainable programs to create financial opportunities for low- and moderate-income households. “I am pleased to be able to contribute to the incredibly important work of the CGI,“ Grinstein-Weiss said. “This is an exciting opportunity to create new connections and strengthen existing ties with innovative thinkers and organizations. Joining the CGI is not only an exciting opportunity for me but also an important opportunity for the Center for Social Development and Washington University to advance our mission by working with like-minded individuals who are leaders in their fields.” For more information on CGI and the Financial Opportunity Working Group, visit here.
