Century Foundation Pledges Support to Advancing Equity for Women and Girls of Color
The Century Foundation has joined two dozen organizations in pledging resources to the goal of advancing equity through research on women and girls of color. Together with twenty-four institutions that include colleges, universities, research organizations, publishers, and public interest organizations — known collectively as the Collaborative to Advance Equity through Research — TCF will fulfill its commitment over the course of the next five years.
The initiative’s announcement came Friday morning at a summit in Washington co-hosted by the White House Council on Women and Girls and the Anna Julia Cooper Center at Wake Forest University. The event, convened with the mission of establishing a research agenda for the next decade specific to women and girls of color, brought together key stakeholders from the academic, private, government and philanthropic sectors that have demonstrated a commitment to increasing opportunity and empowerment for this historically underserved group. . .
