Elevating International Grantmaking With A Gender Lens

Events Equity

To mark the International Women’s Month, Philanthropy New York’s International Grantmakers Network (IGN) invites all funders with interest in international grantmaking to attend a virtual session on gender equity. Join us for a morning conversation with female leaders and hear how gender intersects with different programmatic areas as it examines and considers women’s needs, preferences, assets, and priorities.

What will you learn?

  • How gender is a powerful predictor of outcomes and opportunities, and what a gender perspective brings into the work
  • How integrating a gendered lens can impact subject matter areas, e.g., peace and security, vision, health care access, education, community development, etc.
  • Shared opportunities and challenges, and distinct opportunities and challenges based on the subject matter

Who should attend?
All interested funders in grantmaking roles. What to expect: presentation, followed by roundtable discussion and Q&A.

Ariela Blätter, President and CEO, Women in International Security
Anne Coolen, Global VP of Programs, Vision Spring
