Women, Philanthropy and the Future of Wealth

Meeting Description:

Women increasingly control wealth in America and around the world, and the influence of wealthy women is likely to increase exponentially in the next generation. This webinar will explore important implications of that shift for philanthropy, impact investing, and next-generation wealth management. 

Already, some organizations have begun developing tools, practices, and approaches that address the interests and leadership styles of women with wealth and influence. This webinar will explore their ideas and innovations, with a view toward identifying ideas and practices wealth managers, advisors, and others can use to help an emerging generation of women accomplish their philanthropic goals.

Drawing on the work of three leaders in the field, we will highlight innovative ways to engage women in philanthropy, from using a gender lens for investing to facilitating women’s funding networks to involving the next generation, and will allow time for questions from participants.
