Shift happens.

December 2011

This month's issue is about shifting perceptions. You might not be able to see it when you look out your window, but slowly, person by person, company by company, attitudes and actions are shifting in our community.

The Women’s Fund of The Greater Cincinnati might be best known for leading the PULSE Study in 2005. It was the first research in Greater Cincinnati that illustrated the depth of the gender divide in poverty. 

The PULSE Study changed the conversation. It helped nonprofits articulate their challenges in grant proposals. It helped key institutions understand the adversity facing women in our community. It spurred the creation of leadership development programs for women.

Inspired individual conversations that occur in outdated and stagnant workplaces are fruitless. We wanted to create a profound shift, so we aimed to change the conversation about women in the workplace at the highest corporate levels. 

In 2011, The Women’s Fund introduced the Corporate Mastermind program – an intensive series of workshops designed to help companies define, create and implement strategic women’s initiatives. 

Led by accomplished executive coaches and corporate veterans, Amy Katz and Pam Lowe, our inaugural class of four companies stood on the shoulders of giants – learning from corporations who have already seen winning results from their women’s initiatives.

We are currently recruiting the second class of companies to take part in this transformational program. Click here for more details

With your help, we can continue the shift in our community. 

The vision of 1000 Women Strong is to bring together a community of women to positively impact women and girls in Greater Cincinnati through grantmaking, research and advocacy. Join today!
