As a leader of social change, The Women’s Fund of Central Ohio is a public foundation committed to advocating for and convening voices to create gender equality and influence. Economic Self Sufficiency is the core of our work, and is supported by Lifeskills for Girls, and Leadership for Women. Underpinning this work is the effect and implications of Gender Norms. Our work is guided by research, which informs our programs and partnerships, grant making, and advocacy efforts; all while growing women’s philanthropy to influence change. We achieve social change through collaborative efforts, by developing new models, and building on those that have already proven effective.
