Part of a new series of informal brown-bag lunch conversations for funders around issues of inclusion, equity, and diversity.

Join Tory Dietel Hopps, Managing Partner of Dietel Partners for an informal conversation about applying a gender lens to your work. Tory will share insights from a recent gender audit that Mama Cash did for Dietel Partners. Mama Cash was the first international women’s fund in the world which advances social change by starting with gender equality and respect for the human rights of everyone.

Hear about what Dietel Partners learned from the audit process, how it has impacted their work and what they are changing in their grantmaking approach and process as a result.
