Watch Jim Smith on How Thomson Reuters Foundation Makes a difference in people’s lives

What does the Thomson Reuters Foundation do and why does it matter?

If you’re not sure of the answer, watch the short video below, shown as part of the Aspen Ideas Festival in which Jim Smith, CEO of our Professional division, explains the importance of the Foundation.

Jim outlines why our Foundation is one of the most meaningful applications we have of The Knowledge Effect – and gives three examples of how the Foundation makes a difference to people’s lives by putting the right information in the right hands at the right time:

1. The Emergency Information Service’s work in Haiti

2. TrustLaw and connecting volunteer lawyers to social entrepreneurs and NGOs

3. AlertNet – the world’s #1 humanitarian website
