Interview: Whole Planet Foundation Director, Joy Stoddard
Professor Yunus is an inspiration, and he sees the world much like our Co-CEO John Mackey – they see solutions and want to help make the world a better place. The Grameen methodology developed by Professor Yunus has a proven track record, and it works. I have seen women all over the world flourishing because of this system. Also, I’ve witnessed him interacting with clients in the field and it’s like he’s a member of their family, making an immediate connection and also holding them accountable for their progress. Professor Yunus is a very down-to-earth, genuine person who truly cares and works so hard for the very poor.
6. What is your vision for poverty in 2025? I’m all for the Professor’s plan to put poverty in a museum! With half the world’s population living on less than $2 a day, it will take all of us working together to achieve this reality.
7. What would be the tweet that sums up your experience in a career as a change maker? I am living my purpose!
