Event description
These online seminars explain gender lens investing, why it matters and how it can be carried out.

About this event

2020 has shown all of us, and the philanthropic community in particular, that resilience in any investment and grant-making strategy is vital. It has proved a pivotal moment to look again at how your values or those of your organisation align with your investing.

Ariadne invites you to watch a special course of online seminars on Gender Lens Investing. These are for grant-makers, trustees and board members; high net worth individuals; programme, investment and management officers; and anyone in the philanthropic community who is interested in investing to help achieve gender equality and justice.

They are hosted by Jo Andrews, former Director of Ariadne and co-founder of Equileap, which works to accelerate gender equality in the workplace. The seminars explain gender lens investing, why it matters and how it can be carried out or incorporated into your practice of philanthropy. It also looks at how GLI might include non-binary gender definitions and intersectional marginalisation, such as racial justice.
