Since 1977, WOMEN’S WAY has been breaking down barriers that hold women and girls back through our key roles of convener, grant maker and educator/mobilizer. We work in partnership with individuals, organizations, and communities that have a stake in advancing gender equity to build a region where all women and girls thrive.
To ensure that individuals’ donations are invested wisely, WOMEN’S WAY is updating our grantmaking process, allowing us to:
Be more nimble and flexible in response to urgent needs
Be a leader in systems-level learning, driving deep impact across the Philadelphia region
Be a catalyst for collaboration
Make data-driven decisions
Engage donors on the impact of their investments
Be a regional thought leader on women’s issues
We understand that inequities, biases, and norms are inextricably linked, including those rooted in gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, differential ability, age and socioeconomic background. We will use this lens to inform our grantmaking process.
