Current events, combined with long standing gender inequality, have highlighted the need to advance gender equity in all segments of our society.

The half-day summit provides a space to learn with your fellow funders, community, and thought leaders about the most pressing gender equity issues that are facing our region and strategies that have been developed to balance the playing field.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn and share your thinking with you peers about how you can make your philanthropy work even better for our most vulnerable communities.
