SEATTLE–(May 5, 2022)–AuthenticID, a global leader in identity proofing and fraud prevention solutions, announced a collaborative effort with Carlyle Global Partners motivated philanthropists to help address the accelerating global shortage of nurses. Co-hosted by philanthropists Sandy and Bill Nicholson, the initiative launched on Thursday, April 28th, during a special event at the iconic Barney’s building on Madison Avenue, NYC.
Collectively, the group has set a target to raise $10 million to fund 1,000 nurse scholarships that fund specialized training to address the care and rehabilitation of sexually exploited victims, which is an issue that has accelerated at unprecedented rates during the COVID-19 pandemic. This initiative is in partnership with the Carlyle supported Nurse Heroes program which is to also address the escalating nurse shortage in the US, and globally.
“Any type of exploitation victim has a sense of identity and self-esteem loss,” says AuthenticID CEO, Jeff S. Jani. “Our company is seeking to leverage our advanced identity authentication technology that aims to protect identity rights to also restore the identity rights of those that have been victimized,” added Jani.
“The scale of what we are trying to address together is massive. The projected deficit of nurses in the US is nearly 1 million. Experts believe the number of people suffering from the emotional duress from exploitation may be in excess of 10 million,” says Carlyle Global Partners CEO, Alex Charlton. “Our Carlyle families seek to align themselves with big problems that can benefit from big scale solutions. Investing in closing the specialized training needed to restore and redeem the identities of these victims will also likely also increase the therapeutic care capacity of our country for other types of mental illness as well,” added Charlton.
AuthenticID and Carlyle Global Partners also plan to explore other opportunities that can impact and improve the rehabilitative care infrastructure of our country that can transform victims from survivors to thrivers.
