AIGM Wire: Women Moving Millions philanthropic leaders to tour

US phlanthropic leaders Ann Lovell and Jacki Zehner will be touring Australia in November for events organised by the Australian Women Donors Network (AWDN).

The Power of Women events in Sydney and Melbourne during November will see Ms Lovell and Ms Zehner - from the US-based Women Moving Millions organisation - in conversation with journalist and author Catherine Fox.

They will speak about:

  • The case for gender lens investing and philanthropy: Why is it important, and what impact can it have?
  • The growing financial power of women: Impacts for philanthropists and investors
  • The evidence: How does investment in women accelerate social change?
  • The imperative: Why women and girls - why now?
  • Wider trends in US philanthropy

The Sydney event is scheduled for November 10, with the Melbourne event to be staged on November 15.
