Mission

Lever for Change Equality Can't Wait Awardee

National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA) is the leading voice for the millions of domestic workers in the United States and works to win them respect, dignity and labor protections.

Lever for Change Project Description
The National Domestic Workers Alliance, Caring Across Generations, the National Women's Law Center, The Arc, MomsRising Education Fund, and Family Values @ Work, propose to accelerate women's equality by infusing the idea of care as a shared responsibility and coordinating solutions to transform caregiving for all.

Jenn Stowe, Fatima Goss Graves, and Josephine Kalipeni are Black female caregivers who lead three of this project’s anchor partners. The project is driven by the needs/experiences of Black female caregivers and is using research/audience testing to center those most impacted.


Launched in June 2020, Equality Can't Wait was a $40 million challenge to fund solutions to help expand women’s power and influence in the U.S. by 2030. The Challenge was hosted by Pivotal Ventures, Melinda French Gates’ investment and incubation company — with additional support from MacKenzie Scott and Dan Jewett, and Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Philanthropies. Five-hundred-and-fifty (550) proposals were submitted to the competition and were evaluated using four criteria: Whether the proposals were transformative, innovative, equitable, and feasible. The Equality Can't Wait Idea Lab features top projects from all submissions, as selected by a panel of experts and peers. Five Awardees were announced in July 2021: Four received $10 million each (Ada Developers Academy; Girls Inc.; Native Women Lead; National Domestic Workers Alliance), and one received $4 million (FreeFrom).
