Our Approach to Gender-Wise Philanthropy
The Reichstein Foundation is committed to gender inclusion and equity. We will take gender into account so that we maximise the impact of our philanthropic investment. Furthermore we will seek to develop our familiarity with social justice issues facing people from across the gender spectrum.
We know that empowering women is a highly effective philanthropic response. We also know that as grant-makers and grant-seekers we need to understand the gender impacts of our investments and activities.
We encourage grant-makers and grant-seekers to consult these resources created by the Australian Women Donors Network (AWDN) as a guide to gender-lens analysis:
- Read more about investing in women and girls: Investing in Women and Girls
- Applying the AWDN gender lens to a proposed program: Gender-wise guidelines for grant-seekers
We acknowledge that more work needs to be done to develop effective philanthropic responses to the circumstances of LGBTIQA+ people.
