our focus

Miller Center is passionate about the power of social entrepreneurship to transform the world. We focus on Climate Resilience for our planet and Women's Economic Empowerment. The world's poor and most vulnerable are bearing the brunt of climate change. Women make up half of the world's population yet represent 70% of the world's poor. Because women represent the majority, they carry a greater burden. They are also the ones actively leading their communities to find solutions.
