2000 - Current

The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation operates the world’s largest living history museum in Williamsburg, Virginia—the restored 18th-century capital of Britain’s largest, wealthiest, and most populous outpost of empire in the New World. In Colonial Williamsburg’s 301-acre Historic Area stand hundreds of restored, reconstructed, and historically furnished buildings. Costumed interpreters tell the stories of the men and women of the 18th-century city—black, white, and native American, slave, indentured, and free—and the challenges they faced. They help the future learn from the past.

Founded in 1940, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund advances social change that contributes to a more just, sustainable, and peaceful world. The RBF's grantmaking is organized around three themes: Democratic Practice, Peacebuilding, and Sustainable Development. Though the Fund pursues its three program interests in a variety of geographic contexts, it has identified several specific locations on which to concentrate cross-programmatic attention. The Fund refers to these as "RBF pivotal places": subnational areas, nation-states, or cross-border regions that have special importance with regard to the Fund's substantive concerns and whose future will have disproportionate significance for the future of a surrounding region, an ecosystem, or the world. The Fund currently works in three pivotal places: New York City, Western Balkans, and Southern China. Discerning and communicating the impact of our grantmaking and other program activities are essential to fulfilling our mission and commitment to stewardship, transparency, and accountability.The RBF carefully monitors performance—both institutional effectiveness and program impact.

Building customer relationships requires time, effort and sincerity. For Sysco, it began with a promise to assist foodservice operators in providing consumers with solutions for meals consumed away from home. Since the initial public offering in 1970, when sales were $115 million, Sysco has grown to $37 billion in sales for fiscal year 2010. Many solid customer relationships have been nurtured along the way, countless dining trends and meal alternatives have evolved, and today the decision to consume meals prepared away from home is as much necessity as choice. Since then, the industry it serves has expanded from $35 billion to more than $200 billion. Today, Sysco has sales and service relationships with approximately 400,000 customers and remains committed to helping them succeed in the foodservice industry and satisfy consumers' appetites. Operating from more than 180 locations throughout the United States, Canada and Ireland, Sysco's product lines are as diverse as the 45,000 employees who support its daily operations. They include not only the ingredients needed to prepare meals, but also numerous ancillary preparation and serving items. As a result, Sysco can make a difference in its customers' lives and the success of their businesses

MLT is creating a critical mass of minority leaders within corporations, non-profits and entrepreneurial ventures. When MLT?s vision is realized, minorities will be fully represented among corporate CEOs; heads of major non-profit organizations; innovative entrepreneurs; leaders of top grant-making foundations; and high net-worth individuals and committed philanthropists. This new generation of leaders will broaden the talent pool and diversity of ideas in corporate America, as well as bring new insight into persistent social challenges and create and support sustainable solutions for struggling communities. MLT?s unique talent development system goes beyond the traditional scholarship and internship approach to provide young people with the key ingredients, not taught in even the best classrooms, that are critical for career success: hard and soft skills, a preparatory roadmap, door-opening relationships, mentoring at critical junctures and a high performing peer community. MLT identifies high-potential young people and accelerates their trajectory during critical career transition points: college to early career, early career to business school and business school to post-MBA career. Programming is delivered via a combination of one-to-one coaching from a full-time MLT coach and in-person workshops conducted in partnership with MLT?s partner corporations, non-profits and business schools.
