Philanthropy advisers, wealth managers, foundation managers from Barclays Philanthropy, UBS, JP Morgan Philanthropy, Fondation CHANEL, Swarovski Foundation and The Circle friends joined us to discuss philanthropic funding for gender equality. Less than 2% of global funding goes to women’s rights. At The Circle we want to change this and ensure that women’s rights receives the attention and funding needed.
The need for the work of The Circle and its funded partners on the frontline in their communities has never been greater. This is why we have launched our Empowerment Fund and Solidarity Fund to support our organisational growth, funded partners and advocacy work. If you are interested in hearing more about these funds please contact us at The Circle.
We were delighted to amplify and centre the voice of one of our partners, Rahela Sidiqi, of Rahela Trust who inspired guests with her passion and determination to continue supporting Afghan women in higher education in the face of the most dramatic rollback of women’s rights and discrimination.
Thank you to Nneka Orji for her support in curating this event. We are grateful for the incredible energy in the room, the diverse discussions and the extraordinary commitment of this network of global feminists who stand in solidarity and action with The Circle.
