Our Focus


Our Focus


Miller Center focuses on Climate Resilience for our planet and Women Rising - the economic empowerment of women. 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. 

Women Rising: Miller Center works to promote the economic empowerment of women by developing strong pipelines of investment-ready, women-led social enterprises and helping social enterprises better serve women.

Climate Resilience: We work with social enterprises that are helping communities adapt to climate change: Providing clean water, energy, and sanitation; enhancing agricultural production; and strengthening health systems.
