Second Acts: How Does a Tech Exec Become a Philanthropist?
In a special five-episode mini-season of Working, we talk with people who have had â€œsecond acts,â€ that is people who made a dramatic career pivot at some point in their working lives.Patty Stonesifer was running a computer-book publisher in Indianapolis when Microsoft recruited her to run its publishing division. In 10 years at the company, she rose to senior vice president of the Interactive Media Divisionâ€”where one of the sites she launched was Slate. (Stonesifer is now married to the magazineâ€™s founding editor, Michael Kinsley.) When she left the tech giant, Bill Gates recruited her to lead what became the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. After a decade there, she left to become the president and CEO of Marthaâ€™s Table, a Washington, D.C., nonprofit. She has also served as chair of the Smithsonian Institution Board of Regents, was appointed by President Barack Obama to lead the White House Council for Community Solutions, and is the lead director of the corporate board of Amazon.com.
