Funding and supporting feminist center media
Bring feminist media into the public policy issues
Engage funders in stronger understanding of role of feminist media as social change issue and seeing it supported at far greater rates
fantastic video Sarah
@Laina - you're welcome. We must always tell and center our stories and lived experiences
Melanie, your work and message is profound. Kerry Gardner, Global Fund for Women
@Kerry - thank you very much. Nice to meet you
we worked w Tarana Burke to take #metoo global after she visited us in Australia
that's wonderful. she's powerful
@Tuti— can you share how TIDES leading the way to blended finance and @Melanie—do you see gender lens movements be mindful of intersectionality of gender and race (I haven’t seen enough and wondering if you have)
I'm interested in the quality and availability of data about the impact of Covid on women? In New Zealand we have data on violence and unemployment for example. Is there good data to use? What is it saying?
Groundswell (formerly Catalyst) came out of Tides. A great model fund for different sectors….like media
thanks Laina. Tides allows for donors to make grants to c3, c4 and the funds of the donor advised funds are invested in vehicles that drive social impact. additionally, Tides does impact based direct investments from a DAF.
@Laina - yes, especially in those movements led by women of color.
For all panelists. Covid has enabled us to have sessions like this across continents and different participants for many different corners. This is a media form. How can we expand it even more to benefit more women.
In majority led movements, yes, also, but it needs more intentionality.
Thanks! @Tuti @Melanie
@Laina- and let me specify - those movements led by queer women of color are the ones I see leading with a true intersectional lens
I would suggest trust based funding rather than flexible funding … it brings a different tone and allows for an opening to reposition power. it also lets the leader of the venture determine what and where to move the dollars. requires listening as Sarah so well stated.
yes to Trust Based Philanthropy @Tuti!
@Laina --- I agree with Melanie completely on queer women of color leading the way. I also invite you to look at McKenzie Scott (Bezos) publicly listed grantees she gave to.
yes! I love everything @MacKenzie Bezos is doing - and especially how she did it.
intersectionality is still in issue in people of color led spaces. we are all on a journey and have to acknowledge our blind spots in our movements
What could donors that do not consider themselves a 'philanthropist' per se do to make a difference?
Here is one film by a young woman on THE VOTE: THE FIFTH STAR (9:28, 2010) by Naomi Nelson @ReelGrrls https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yH_uK-Yg-bA
And another younger girls made film and how they reacted to the 2016 election in the US: SHY GIRL (4:20, 2017) from @girlsclubny https://vimeo.com/212807167
We at Angels of Impact have worked to change mindsets about women of color as change agents by publishing a book “Sustainable Impact: How women are key to ending poverty” —idea is to showcase how women of color are great social entrepreneurs helping to end systemic poverty
One of the reason why film by women is so important — is because it OFFERS vision.
VISION being one more step along with Voice.
@Nikita - we are all philanthropists and all have time, talent and treasures that we can give to issues and movements that we care about.
Women do need more than micro-finance—they need larger amounts —we need to change mindsets that women can only take micro-finance
@Lucy Yes!! Support women lead business in ALL your work — when you have a brochure made give the work to women. ETC
so true, @Laina
Thank you Melanie, its what I hear often and I love your response!
So important to support women owned businesses, thanks Lucy!
The funding gap Angels of Impact is focused on is women led social enterprises that are too big for micro=finance but too small for impact investors
Martha Richards, an original member of WMM$ has a great idea for POLICy in the cultural community — it needs $10 Million.
yes. yes, yes "women's funds are on the front lines of philanthropy."
@Ariel - 100%. I never believe the arguments "we can't find a woman led xyz company" - they totally exist, we just need to look harder and in less conventional ways to find and support them.
There is a huge pipeline of women led businesses supporting UNSDGs that need funding—and common complaint that there isn’t a pipeline (invisible to mainstream finance)
yes what Sarah said too!!! Fund policy, systems change, movement infrastructure and narrative change.... this is the long term work we did in women's sports. women in leadership came through sports experience -- 96% of women in c suite played sports.
quote from Vicki Saunders - head of Sheo -- women's investing circle with $1000 entry point investing in women entrepreneurs. "we need to deconstruct ourselves and our systems to build a flourishing and sustainable world."
