ARMING WOMEN AND MEN WITH THE TOOLS TO PROPEL CHANGE
SPARKING CHANGE THROUGH ORIGINAL DATA AND RESEARCH
From people to policies, we initiate change through original data and research. Our findings do more than inform; they ignite intentional and measurable efforts to affect gender equality. These efforts give passionate disruptors and influencers like you the insight to make progress happen.
Through reports such as Womenomics and tools like Gender By Us™, our research and data inform the work and the programs we invest in, are leveraged for policy decision making, and open the eyes of the community to mobilize action—creating systemic and lasting change.
Gender Wealth Gap Research Project
We know that inequality exists for the ability to save, whether for an emergency or for retirement. This gender wealth gap is something we want to learn more about. We want to understand the factors that contribute to the gender wealth gap at each stage of a woman’s life, as well as the evaluation of the larger wealth gap for women of color. The Women’s Fund is accepting proposals to conduct research and create a report on the gender wealth gap. To learn more about the topic and how to submit a proposal, click here.
