With a Twitter feed full of insightful and thoughtful articles, it’s no wonder Melinda Gates was named to Fortune’s list of Influential Women on Twitter.
Gates has made a name for herself as the co-chairperson of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, headquartered in Seattle. The foundation was started in 1997 with the goal of giving back to the global community. Since then, the foundation has donated billions of dollars to eradicate disease and homelessness around the world and in the Puget Sound.
According to Fortune, the women were selected because they “champion gender diversity and leadership both professionally and on social media.” Gates’ Twitter feed is an example of that advocacy work. She frequently shares information on gender diversity across the globe, women in technology, and her behind-the-scenes experiences meeting other influential women.
