Even in a year where we are seeing women of color in increasingly prominent roles, and essential workers -- who are disproportionately women -- have been widely lauded as “heroes,” we continue to witness the intersection of gender and race as significant barriers to economic, socio-cultural and political power. The COVID-19 crisis, the economic recession and the renewed attention to structural racism have underscored what historically marginalized women face every day – the burden of sexist and racist institutions, norms and policy choices that systematically limit women’s power and devalue their work.

Learn how the intertwined structures of racism and sexism are at the root of negative gendered outcomes and built into all the issues we fund. Explore how your grantmaking framework and strategy can benefit from a new lens on the work from the authors of a new thought-provoking report who are working on systems change designed to bring about greater equity.

  • A structural analysis of gender discrimination and the multiple oppressions women face
  • A new gender equity framework for evaluating policy problems and ways that funders can help grantees incorporate a structural sexism lens
  • How to help grantees challenge racist and sexist narratives to generate more equitable policies
  • Opportunities to share and collaborate with other gender equity funders


Designed for

All interested funders in grantmaking roles. What to expect: presentation blended with breakout discussions.
