Mike Bezos, Vice President and Co-Founder, Bezos Family Foundation, in conversation with Walter Isaacson
Mike Bezos often says, “your education is always yours – once you have it, it cannot be taken away.” Guided by this notion and a deeply held belief that all children deserve an opportunity to achieve their full potential and contribute meaningfully to society, Mike co-founded the Bezos Family Foundation in 2000 with his wife Jackie, their three children, and their spouses, all of whom serve as directors. Through investments in research, public awareness, advocacy and programs, the foundation works to elevate the field of education and improve life outcomes for all children along the continuum from birth through high school.
Walter Isaacson is the president and CEO of the Aspen Institute, a nonpartisan educational and policy studies institute based in Washington, DC. He has been the chairman and CEO of CNN and the editor of TIME magazine.
