Closing the Women’s Wealth Gap: A Life Cycle Approach

Host Organization: Asset Funders Network, Funders for Gender Equity, and Philanthropy New York


The factors limiting a woman’s abilty to build and preserve wealth are interconnected throughout her life, so why aren’t the solutions? Research shows that a “one-size fits all” approach to closing the women’s wealth gap is infective.

In collaboration with the New York and Regional Asset Funders Network, join this conversation to learn more about leading strategies that can shed light on the challenges that women face in building assets, the historical and structural challenges that disadvantage women especially women of color, opportunities and solutions across a woman’s life span, ensuring women can not only build wealth but pass it on to future generations.
