THE CHALLENGE

In the United States, factors related to socio-economic status and race prevent all women from participating and progressing in the workforce. Nonprofits that help women enter and stay in the workforce are few and lack resources.  The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated income inequality for women, esp. women of color.

Currently, only 1.9 percent of U.S. philanthropic giving goes to women’s and girls’ – the majority of which is for health and reproductive services.

OUR ACTIVITIES

  1. Vet and partner with effective nonprofits focused on improving the economic and social landscape for women who are economically marginalized.
  2. Invest dollars and skills from businesses to grow the capacity of our nonprofit partners working for women through funding and skill-based volunteering.
  3. Report out on the impact of our collective efforts.
