The Importance of Research: Gender Equality Explorer
The Women's Foundation of Minnesota has developed a free interactive online research tool that allows anyone to compare gender equity data for any area in the United States. The Gender Equality Explorer takes what would have been months of aggregating data into just a few clicks of your mouse and enables you to create tables, maps and reports to illustrate the status of women and girls in your community. Following the momentum from their successful workshop at WFN's recent conference in LA, The Women's Foundation of Minnesota will now be presenting how women's funds and grantee partners can use this tool to advance their work during this hands-on webinar.
Who's Occupying Feminist Media?
In this issue-briefing webinar, Nancy Gruver of the National Council of Women's Organizations and New Moon Girls will share the most current statistics about the lack of women's media power. She will present a process to develop a plan for concerted, coordinated action by women's organizations to ensure that girls' and women's realities are presented equally in the media.
