Conferences & Summits


Biennial Conference



  • 400+ people attended our global conference: Women Funded 2017: Tools for Turbulent Times  in San Francisco, September 6 – 8. Read more about Women Funded.
  • Knowledge is power, but it doesn’t have to be boring. #WomenFunded2017 participants experienced the knowledge, skills and resources in multiple ways. After two and a half days of interactive workshops, labs and plenaries on digital strategies, global/local advocacy, organizing and more, attendees left with the #powertools to care of business at home.

Stay tuned: Women’s Funding Network’s biennial conference gathering of gender equity supporters and funders returns to San Francisco in 2019.


On alternating years to our conference, Women’s Funding Network hosts two summits to provide a deep immersion for our members into the barriers they are dismantling through policy advocacy and grantmaking.

Discover what initiatives are working, explore the current funding landscape, and leverage the opportunities for cross-sector collaboration. Each day-long  summit gives attendees the opportunity to share, learn, and strategize for the future in an intimate setting. Attendees leave with concrete action plans across sectors to further their work.

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

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.

In 2018, the first summit was held in New York City on May 22nd and the second summit will be held in Seattle on September 13th.
