SUMMIT // New Orleans

Advancing women’s economic security.



Join in the dialogue with women’s foundations and leading funders of gender equity as we dig deep into strategies for advancing women’s economic security.

Discover what initiatives are working, explore the current funding landscape, and leverage the opportunities for cross-sector collaboration.

Key focus areas:

  • Women’s economic security: programmatic and funding landscape.
  • Deep dive into the two-generation approach to eliminating poverty—how to program, measure, fund, and collaborate.
  • Impact showcase: attendees command the mic to provide quick updates on the programs they’re funding that are advancing women’s and girls’ economic empowerment.
  • Working groups: cross-sector dialogue between funders with the view to forming new partnerships and action plans that advance women’s economic security

Members receive 2 complimentary registrations and unlimited member-rate registrations. Find out more about membership.

You do not need to be a Women’s Funding Network member to attend; however, this is an event limited to funders of gender equity. Contact us for more information.
