Our People

We’re done with being patient

We are dreamers and doers. Analysts and activists. Movement leaders and market mavens. We bring decades of experience across feminist movements, philanthropy, impact investing, social enterprise, business, and government.

Meet our team and Board members below.

Our Team

Together, we bridge sectors, geographies, backgrounds, and industries in service of a future built by us, for us: where feminist movements have the resources and power they deserve.
