Research: The PULSE Studies
In 2003, more than 30 executives of nonprofit organizations in our region that serve women and girls expressed the need for good and relevant data on the status of women and girls in our area. Among the benefits would be increased awareness of issues affecting women and girls, more regional cooperation and more focused programs and services, and a stronger case for support of those programs and services.
Since then, The Women’s Fund has become the region’s expert on the status of women’s economic self-sufficiency. The Fund reviews a wide range of reports and data from sources across the country to identify the trends, issues and solutions that will help women move forward.
Since the 2005 debut of the original PULSE report, The Women’s Fund has commissioned five additional groundbreaking reports. Links to this research can be found below:
