About Us

 

Girls and young women of color live at the intersections of sexism, racism, and other forms of oppression that prevent their full participation in our country’s future. Yet new research is helping us to better understand the barriers they face, while opening up new pathways for partnership and shared progress.

To capture this learning and promote collective strategizing, this site serves as an information resource for philanthropic funders, bringing together the latest research, data, and insights and making them easily available, all in one place.

Over time, it will also highlight new funding, initiatives, and partnerships that are designed to address the challenges facing our nation’s girls and young women of color.

An initial project of the NoVo Foundation, Foundation for a Just SocietyMs. Foundation for Women, The New York Women’s Foundation, Communities for Just Schools Fund and other partners, it is meant to serve as a shared resource across philanthropy. It will grow and expand based on suggestions and feedback from the philanthropic community.
