Quartz Shines A Light On Chan Zuckerberg Initiative

WORLDZ is all about shaping the world of tomorrow, and we understand the importance of showcasing both organizations and causes focused on changing our world for the better. Quartz is no stranger to spotlighting social impact programs like the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, which is which is why journalist Robert Safian sat down with Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan to discuss why Chan is the day-to-day CEO, how they balance work-life challenges, and what makes their philanthropic effort distinctive.

Launched by Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg back in 2015, CZI is arguably the most well-funded startup in history, with some $45 billion in the family’s wealth pledged at its inception three years ago. Since then CZI has expanded rapidly, hiring hundreds of employees—many of them engineers—and committing to projects across education, scientific research, and a range of social-action areas. To find out more about CZI, check out this amazing stand-alone Q&A with Priscilla and Mark.
