Providing economic opportunity, food security and a safe environment for future generations requires leadership at all levels of society. Winrock has long made it a top priority to equip emerging leaders, particularly women and girls, with the skills, opportunities and networks of support they need to succeed in their communities and beyond.
The opportunity for American businesses, investors and nonprofits to fully engage with people and institutions in Cuba is tantalizingly close. Winrock President and CEO Rodney Ferguson was tapped to join former U.S. Senators Nancy Kassenbaum and Tom Daschle on the advisory board of The Cuba Consortium. Ferguson joins a roster of economic, legal, political and cultural experts tasked with tracking and fostering the ongoing process of normalizing relations between the two countries.
