 As Covid-19 has swept the globe it has had acute impacts on women and girls, including rising rates of domestic violence and economic insecurity, especially for Indigenous women, other black and brown women, and those working in informal sectors. The pandemic has threatened progress made across sectors, including health equity, education, and access to justice. Responding to these challenges requires supporting projects, organizations, movements that empower women and girls and advance gender equality and social inclusion including supporting diverse voices and leadership. Join The Asia Foundation and Philanthropy New Zealand to discuss how grantmaking organizations and individual philanthropists can apply a gender and social inclusion lens to their giving to achieve greater impact.

Scott, Interim CEO of Tides Foundation USA; and Lucy Lee, Senior Associate for Volition Capital and Lotus Circle Bay Area convener.
