Untold Story #75: Meet Ellen Agler

World's Greatest Women

This woman moved around a lot as a child but didn’t seem to mind. She was curious, open-minded and adaptable and loved the diversity of life. As she grew, she thought she wanted to be a writer and started her first novel at age 8. As an adult her writing showed up in politics and in local papers. There was something about a story that drew her in and she found herself wanting to follow the story and be a part of the change it created. Her first global opportunity to experience such change on a large scale appeared in the area of public health and she was consumed with its ability to impact. Today she walks a path to greatness as the CEO of an organization working to end neglected tropical diseases that affect over 1.5 billion people. It is my pleasure to introduce you to Ellen Agler.

065: Ellen Agler, CEO of the End Fund, on Ending Neglect and Suffering

The Paterson Podcast

Today we have the privilege of hearing from Ellen Agler. Ellen serves as the CEO of the END Fund, working to see an end to the suffering caused by Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) that affect over 1 billion people world wide.Most of us have probably never heard of Neglected Tropical Diseases; and yet it is a massive issue affecting over a billion people around the world. As Ellen states, “To me the question is ‘What can we modify? Where can we have a nudge or a convening? What small policy can we change before we work on the big policy?”In reflecting on some of the cultural and structural barriers this movement has faced, Ellen notes: "What’s behind structural challenge or opposition? Usually it’s people and individual decisions and a mindset that can potentially be changed. I’ve found this to be a battle that’s one person and one conversation at a time."The END Fund is known for their leadership in the philanthropic world. “In philanthropy - as activist philanthropists- we have to remember our assets. Money is one asset but so is your voice, your connections, your convening power and your ability to network on behalf of something.”Listen in to hear more of Ellen’s journey, her thoughts on strategy, investment, and impact and what it will take to see an end to NTDs in our lifetime.
