The Women’s Fund offers learning events throughout the year as we bring together members and the public to learn more about critical issues impacting women and girls in Forsyth County. Please join us!
This three-part virtual series will be an opportunity for the community to explore the online Through a Gender Lens report with the Fund and partake in honest dialogue to help inform future advocacy efforts focused on women and girls, particularly women and girls of color. If you are familiar with the past two gender lens reports, you may notice that the 2020 online report has much fewer stories and narrative. This was an intentional effort on behalf of the Fund because we wanted to invite the community to play a role in helping us determine the narrative of this report, and more importantly, what actions The Women's Fund and the broader community should take to improve the economic security of women and girls in our community.
The first event of this series took place on Wednesday, February 10.
Register now for part two of the series on Thursday, March 4 at noon. The final event date is TBD.
Each November, hundreds of community members have gathered to celebrate the power of collective giving at our Annual Luncheon. During the program, The Women’s Fund announces grants to both established organizations and grassroots programs that focus on creating social change - all funded from the pooled contributions of the Fund’s membership and other donors. The luncheon reflects The Fund’s success in gathering a community together as one, and utilizing their collective knowledge, wisdom, and resources to create social change.

This educational event held in July is an opportunity to engage members and the community at-large around important topics and issues identified by the Fund. The program typically consists of both speakers and small group discussions, and past topics have included unconscious bias, advocacy, and economic security for women and girls. The Social Change Exchange is free and open to the public, and we welcome all to join us in our commitment to improving the lives of local women and girls.
