How Philanthropy Can Advance the Urgent Needs of Women and Girls of Color
International Women’s Day gives us an opportune moment to pause and recognize the achievements of girls and women across the globe. In philanthropy, we must celebrate the fact that women of color are an ever-growing force to be reckoned with — representing nearly one fifth of the philanthropic work force.
This is a moment to pause and reflect on all we must still achieve to create a world where every girl and every woman is able to realize her potential and tap into her innate powers. We also believe it is a perfect time for all of us in philanthropy to deepen our accountability to the people we seek to serve in the name of equity and justice.
