Gender Lens Investing: A Unique Approach for Foundations

Host Organization: Exponent Philanthropy


Private foundations are increasingly considering ways to advance gender issues and equality beyond grantmaking. Women and girls represent half of the world’s population, yet gender inequality persists globally.

Gender lens investing, an investment strategy that overlays rigorous financial analysis with gender diverse characteristics, is becoming recognized as one of the most exciting areas of impact and sustainable investing. Foundations are uniquely positioned to apply gender lens investing to their portfolios, whether as one component of a broader ESG-aligned strategy or employing a targeted approach focused on advancing the lives of women and girls.

During this webinar, Julia Enyart and Huldah Robertson will lead a conversation around gender lens investing and the benefits it provides to foundations, including greater portfolio diversification, improved transparency into the investment decision-making process, and the opportunity to further advance an organization’s philanthropic mission.
