Gender Equity

Identifying and addressing gender disparities as a key tenet of our strategy and grantmaking.

The Rockefeller Foundation sees gender equality as more than just a human right, but as an economic and development imperative. Only by making explicit the strong connection between pervasive cultural gender norms and gender inequalities, will we be able to achieve fully workable, equitable solutions to many of the world’s most pressing problems. To that end, we apply a gender lens to all work, including climate resilience and agriculture, while supporting women as agents of change.
