WESI is deeply committed to equity and inclusion. Below, we detail some of the ways in which we are working toward achieving equity in our work.


Equity Principles

WESI believes in:

  1. Centering the self-identified needs and voices of women experiencing financial insecurity
  2. Fostering an inclusive environment where systemic barriers to participation are eliminated for women experiencing financial insecurity
  3. Developing a pipeline that includes access to resources for leadership development of women experiencing financial insecurity to co-create solutions
  4. Providing opportunities for increased awareness and education of system actors around equity, diversity, and inclusion
  5. Challenging and dismantling systemic oppression within all institutions that WESI is connected to that creates and encourages new organizational culture within those institutions
