Christ reminded us that He is in our neighbors and that our love for them represents our love for Him. In this spirit, Catholic Relief Services provides assistance to the poorest and most vulnerable, committed to excellence as our beneficiaries are entrusted to us and deserve our very best. This presentation will highlight sustainable and innovative solutions for building up lives and livelihoods. Catholic Relief Services was founded in 1943 by the Catholic Bishops of the U.S. to serve World War II survivors in Europe. Since then, it has expanded in size to reach more than 100 million people in nearly 100 countries on five continents. Dr. Woo was featured in Foreign Policy (May/June, 2013) as one of the 500 Most Powerful people on the planet and one of only 33 in the category of "a force for good." Before CRS, she served as the dean of the Mendoza College of Business at the University of Notre Dame. During Woo's tenure, the Mendoza College achieved number one ranking (BusinessWeek/Bloomberg) in 2010 and 2011.
