Summit: New York 2018

SUNY Global Center | 116 East 55th St.   New York City

$50/Member     $75/Non-Member


We knew #WomenFunded2017 would set the stage for work ahead in 2018, little did we know how much. Movements from #MeToo to #RacialEquity have been added to the mix. At our NY Summit, we’ll learn how each of us has been responding to the movements and most importantly, practical ways to shift movement talk into action in our daily work.


Morning :   9am  – Noon 

Women’s Economic Security

To achieve true economic opportunity and security, we must move from the theory of intersectionality (race, class, gender) to its practice. Specifically, how does this play out within the economic security programs that foundations support and advance? How are we committed to integrating racial equity in our economic security work in ways that also ultimately end persistent racial outcome disparities? You’ll leave with the tools to develop explicit outcomes that put money and activities in the right places at the right time to drive powerful systems change.

 12pm – 1pm



Afternoon :   1pm  – 5:00pm 

Women and Men as Allies

In the afternoon, we’ll delve into “Where do we go from #MeToo and how do we get there?” #MeToo forced us into some very difficult conversations about sexual harassment at work, home and in communities. Now, there’s a critical mass of men committed to solutions and a hunger for the next phase, focused on action. How can women, trans women, and men work together in this historic moment?


With so few venues for constructive dialogue, Women’s Funding Network, in partnership with and the Center for the Study of Men and Masculinities, is creating that space and will model the dialogue we hope to foster. Starting with conversations between leaders on issues like reproductive rights, workplace equity, men’s violence against women, and gender equity in sports, we will address ways women and men can and are already working together, the new rules of engagement and begin to develop what we call an “allies agenda.”
