Edge Solutions CEO, Julie Haley, was invited to become a member of the Board of Councilors of The Carter Center. The Carter Center is a nongovernmental, not-for-profit organization founded in 1981 by former US President Jimmy Carter and his wife.
“They monitor elections to support fledgling democracies; they eradicate horrible diseases like Guinea Worm and Elephantitis; they have a whole cyber division that roots out radicalizing propaganda and then coaches local clergy/Imams on specific ways to counter that propaganda to reduce its influence in their communities… Their mission statement really says it all: Waging Peace. Fighting Disease. Building Hope,” said Haley, in talking about her passion for and favorite things about The Carter Center.
As a member of the Board of Councilors, Julie will attend various meetings throughout the year and advocate for our community. At all of these meetings and events, both former President Carter and his wife will be present to explain ongoing activities and answer questions on international topics of interest.
