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.
