Description: Participants will learn about and strategize for “impact giving” to support women and girls of color. Sponsored by Inside Philanthropy and The Imprint, this webinar will be a first-of-its-kind online gathering to discuss the research on funding needs for women and girls of color, including the need for increased services for violence prevention, workforce development, access to education, and leadership development.

Presenters will:

  • Discuss the most compelling data available on why this is a pressing need in philanthropy
  • Provide information on what is happening so far in philanthropy to zero in on this population
  • Identify action steps to make funding for the needs of this population a priority
