“Despite women representing approximately 70% of the fundraising profession, we estimate that barely a third are in leadership positions.”

– Mike Geiger, AFP President and CEO

Women are a driving force in the fundraising profession, yet they still face many challenges.  Gender inequities, sexual harassment, implicit bias and less pay than male counterparts are just some of the obstacles that women contend with as they build and grow their careers.

AFP Global’s Women’s Impact Initiative has been created to tackle these systemic issues and support women and their allies as they “stand up, speak out and take action…to create a profession that is equitable, inclusive, diverse and effective.” (AFP Global)

Join Tayrn Gold, Vice President of Chapter Engagement for AFP Global, and Liz LeClair, CFRE, Director of Advancement for SPCA Nova Scotia, as they share the startling statistics behind the Women’s Impact Initiative and discuss how the profession can empower women and move forward.
