Last week, Emily Bove of The Feminist Leadership Project and Helene Wolf of FAIR SHARE met to discuss strategies for building feminist organisations. Out of the meeting, came a powerful collaboration and a shared vision. Read on for details on the joint project and its established mission.
Although women make up nearly 70% of the global social impact workforce, they hold less than 30% of the top leadership positions.
This lack of diverse voices in key decision-making undermines the impact organisations have towards achieving SDG 5 on gender equality, their ability to fully ensure the safeguarding of their workforce and beneficiaries from sexual or power abuse, and their contribution to a new global agenda based on participation and collaboration.
We envision a global social impact sector that practices feminist leadership and sustains organizations that embrace feminist principles and culture at all levels.
