A tribute to Carole L. Brookins


It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing of our former trustee, The Honorable Carole L. Brookins, who died on the 24th March in Florida, after contracting Covid-19.

Carole served with great distinction and commitment on our board, and as a trustee, from 2008 to 2017. 

A woman who had risen to the top of the worlds of business and finance, including a spell as a World Bank Executive Director from 2001 to 2005, it was clear to anyone who knew her how she had achieved this: through independent thinking, strength of character and indefatigable energy. 

At the same time, she was capable of great compassion, kindness and generosity.  All these qualities made her a wonderful adviser, colleague and friend.

A world that is suffering so much disruption and pain because of this virus, is now a little smaller due to Carol’s demise.
