Not one of us will see gender parity in our lifetimes, and nor likely will many of our children.

Are you ok with this?


$10 trillion is the estimated annual value of women’s unpaid work, 13% of global GDP.

This needs to change.


Women on average earn just 82 cents for every $1 earned by men. The wage gap is even larger for most women of color.

It's time we're valued.


Women occupy only 17% of global board seats.

We deserve a seat at the table.

Our Mission

Our mission is to educate, mentor and advocate for the next generation of female entrepreneurs, investors, directors and senior leaders so that they may feel emboldened and empowered as equal participants in the economy, as decision makers in society, as stewards of capital, and most importantly, as catalysts for change.

We need to get to work

The economic gender gap will take 267 years to close.

From our working group members

Madelaine Czufin
"Whether a woman is fundraising for her next fund, or next big idea to build a company, she should not face the challenges that are in the market today. All women deserve the same consideration as men, no exceptions!"
Alexandra Clunies-Ross
"When we only utilize half the population, we are only presented with half of the solutions"

Gerald Evelyn
"The key to a sustainable and resilient future is in equality for all and the optimal utilization of our most precious natural resource – mankind."

John McCartney
"Through our Women's Economic Empowerment Bond Fund we seek to bring a gender lens into capital allocation decisions and plant a stake in the global bond markets that recognizes the inherent value of gender equity in fixed income credit investing."
Kurt Tan
"Equality is the goal; capital allocation is the means. Let’s put our money where our values are and move into the future."
Mei Lee
