Bill Gates said he hopes “others in positions of great wealth and privilege will step up in this moment too.”
Microsoft told employees Thursday that it has indefinitely delayed their return to U.S. offices until it’s safer to do so.
The Microsoft co-founder announced his and his wife's divorce in May of 2021.
The multi-billionaire and co-founder of Microsoft made the announcement on Twitter, saying he and Melinda will continue to work together at their foundation, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Gates also stepped down from the board of Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc, where he has served since 2004.
