The Gender Gap In Philanthropy Revealed plus the California Women’s Conference

One my fav people on the planet is Lisa Witter. Lisa Witter is a Vice-President at Fenton Communications, working with organizations around strategic communications. She is also the author of “The She Spot: Why Women and The Market for Changing the World and How to Reach Them.”

Yesterday she posted this article on Huffington Post on women’s philanthropy. As a board member of the Women’s Philanthropy Institute ( Indiana University ), I am sure she was instrumental in creating this compelling new report on women’s giving. This is a must read study, full of facts and stats and insights. Big thanks to Lisa for highlighting the work of The Women’s Funding Network and Women Moving Millions. I serve in a leadership role with both groups and my oh my, many good things happening in the next few months.
“The Women’s Philanthropy Institute report is illuminating, not because it proves women are “better” than men because they tend to give more, but because it disrupts conventional wisdom about what a philanthropist looks like in terms of both gender and income.” Yes Yes Yes!!!!
The Women’s Conference – 2010! I would have loved to have been there but ……. I am however, looking forward to watching many of the sessions. Check out the fantastic speakers !!!!
October has been a HUGE month for conferences and gatherings for Women and Girls!!!
