Billionaire Bill Gates will resume his public appearances after he and his wife Melinda last week announced plans to divorce after 27 years.
"Gates will discuss lessons learned on pandemic response and health system resiliency, the role of technology in addressing climate change and energy challenges, and the importance of work to promote an inclusive recovery both in the United States and around the globe," according to the invitation.
U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen headlined the event on Tuesday with a push to raise corporate taxes.
The couple co-chair the Gates Foundation, which is the largest private charitable organization of its kind and has spent $53.8 billion since 2000 on various causes from global health care to education.
The future of the foundation has been in the spotlight as philanthropy experts attempt to handicap if the couple will continue to co-chair the organization they founded and grew with $20 billion in Microsoft stock.
Gates, who was worth over $130 billion before the split was announced, has been transferring stock holdings, including Autonation and Coca-Cola FEMSA to Melinda, making her a billionaire in her own right now worth $2.4 billion, per Forbes.
The divorce was announced in a tweet, with the couple noting, "After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage…"
