From Gender Theory to Gender Transformative Giving: Reconnecting Race, Class & Gender

Gender identity? Gender theory? Gender equity? Sometimes it feels like “gender” is hopelessly overused. Is it any wonder that donors often see race and class as integral to their analysis but overlook gender entirely? Moreover, some of us who studied gender theory in school are still struggling with how to apply what we learned to the philanthropy we do for a living. Join a unique, engaging exploration of one person’s journey from LGTB rights and gender identity to "gender transformative" approaches that touch on all youth, by using gender theory to reconnect social justice and gender justice.
