Melinda Gates: 'You Have to Be Elegant in Order to Be Efficient'

A WSJ. Magazine editor tags along with Melinda Gates for a day, describing the philanthropist as "a trained empiricist with a scientist’s love of puzzles" who straddles the worlds of impoverished African villages and halls of wealth and power.

The author follows Ms. Gates, half of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the world’s largest private foundation, as she visits AOL's New York office and, as shown in an accompanying photo gallery, meets with United Nations advisers and delivers a speech for gender equality.
