The World's Largest Foundation Doubles Down On Gender - Forbes
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is not only the largest foundation in the world, it also has a track record of making philanthropic bets that others follow. And they are now doubling down on gender.
One year ago, Gates Foundation launched their first-ever gender strategy. While the foundation has worked on issues related to women’s and girls’ health, this is the first time they’ve developed a strategy specifically to tackle gender inequality. Their narrative, equal is greater, aims to unite global stakeholders around how gender equality benefits everyone—not just women and girls.
