For those of us focused on social justice issues, it is critical to add a gender lens to our work. Gender justice should be on our radar as funders. The folks at TrueChild specialize in gender equity and gender norms. They are a significant resource and have made their research available to the public.

In particular, funders may be interested in their report on Gender Transformative Philanthropy. Other resources for funders can be found here.

Additionally, through support from the Heinz Endowments, TrueChild recently compiled research on the impact of gender norms on Health and Wellness for Black Girls.

Riki blogs regularly on gender and philanthropy for the Council on Foundations.

Please feel free to forward these resources to your colleagues working on issues surrounding social justice. It is important to build awareness of gender norms and inequities as social change funders.
