Advancing gender and reproductive equity in the United States and beyond

At a time when there have been advancements in gender equity and women’s leadership, we are also seeing increasing challenges to rights and access to healthcare for women. We are investing in efforts to ensure women of all kinds are able to shape their own lives and unlock their full potential.

The Opportunity

Women, especially women of color, trans women and gender non-conforming people, continue to face pervasive gender inequities, harassment and abuse, and barriers that limit their autonomy, dignity and advancement. For all people to be fully free to shape their own lives and futures, they must be able to make choices about their careers, their family and their financial security. That means having equal opportunities to advance professionally and economically. It means living free from gender-based harassment, discrimination and violence. It means having access to a full range of safe reproductive healthcare services.

We believe change is both urgent and possible. Now is the time to ensure that all women, inclusive of race, zip code and income level, have equal rights and access to opportunities and safety that enable them to live healthy, productive lives.

Our Approach

We are investing in advancing gender and reproductive equity in the United States and beyond through:

  • Promoting women’s leadership and gender equity. We support initiatives that invest in women leaders and build a broad base of advocates who promote greater opportunity and equality for people of all genders.
  • Addressing sexual harassment and gender discrimination. We support programs and policies that prevent abuse and discrimination, assist survivors, and provide education and training on key issues.
  • Advancing reproductive rights and equity. We support efforts to preserve reproductive rights and full access to services, as well as to scale innovative solutions so every person in every state can access safe reproductive health care.

Among our key investments in this area is the Collaborative for Gender + Reproductive Equity, which aims to attract new funding to advance gender and reproductive equity in the United States. We also helped to found the Safety Respect Equity Network to ensure safe, respectful and equitable Jewish workplaces and communal spaces by promoting gender equity and addressing sexual harassment and gender discrimination in the Jewish community.
