Nisaa Jetha participated in various philanthropy forums during the United Nations General Assembly and Climate Week 2023.
Nisaa was amongst a select few at a private roundtable with Michael Milken discussing healthcare models of the future and catalytic philanthropy. Milken was named one of the ’75 Most Influential People of the 21st Century’ by Esquire magazine and has driven social change with a consistent focus on disrupting – and improving – the status quo. He is recognized as an innovator in access to capital, medical research, education and public health.
In 1982, Milken formalized his previous philanthropy by co-founding the Milken Family Foundation which has worked closely with more than 1,000 organizations around the world. It has supported extensive programs to help address difficult inner-city issues, assist families of children with life-threatening diseases and build youth programs. It has also supported worldwide research on paediatric neurology, nutrition, leukaemia, brain cancer and breast cancer. The MFF’s most acclaimed program, the Milken Educator Awards, was established in 1985 and is the preeminent teacher-recognition program in the U.S., operating in partnership with state departments of education across America.
