Working for Women is helping more women reach financial independence by connecting them to jobs, investing in training and education, and changing the conversation surrounding the barriers facing women in the workplace.
By investing in women, you pave the way for a future where women and girls have the opportunity to reach their full potential.


“When women do better, economies do better. All economies have savings and productivity gains if women have access to the job market. It’s not just a moral, philosophical or equal-opportunity matter. It’s also an economic cause. It just makes economic sense. It’s a no-brainer.”
– Christine Lagarde, President of the European Central Bank

Gender equality isn’t just a women’s issue; it’s the foundation of a fair society and a flourishing economy.

October 11th is Give to Women and Girls Day – an opportunity to make a meaningful difference by donating to organizations that promote gender equity and economic empowerment. 


Investing in women and girls is an investment in the economic, social, and cultural progress of communities and nations. Women of color, in particular, are negatively impacted by wage and gender disparities.

By providing women from marginalized communities with equal opportunities, resources, and support, we unlock their immense potential to drive innovation, economic growth, and positive social change, ultimately creating a more inclusive and prosperous society for all.
