The Women's Fund goes to the Statehouse - Ignite Change: A Day to Educate, Motivate, Advocate

On Thursday, February 16, 2017, The Women's Fund co-hosted Ignite Change, a day to educate, motivate, and advocate as we apply a gender lens to public policy.


Ohio Ignites ChangeCINCINNATI (Feb. 26, 2017)—The Women’s Fund of The Greater Cincinnati Foundation and the Women’s Fund of Central Ohio, as well as many other partners, are focused on making positive, long-term systemic change for working women who are striving to become self-sufficient. 

We are all committed to advocating for and convening voices to create gender equality and influence. 

On Thursday, February 16, we asked the question…How can public policy positively impact families, women, and girls in Ohio? More than 350 people gathered to answer this question. They did so by looking through a gender lens, and using their voices to ignite change with 38 legislative meetings. 

The effect of Statehouse Day will continue beyond yesterday because we stepped into the advocate role and influenced the conversation. 

The Women’s Fund will continue focusing on momentum locally to build thriving economic communities. We know, that women’s leadership is needed to create solutions. Join us as we continue to ignite change with a gender lens for gender equality by:
