Leading Impact for the Future of Women's Philanthropy Presentation Transcript

  • 1. #WOMENLEADING PHILANTHROPY SUMMIT Susan McPherson CEO, McPherson Strategies @susanmcp1 SloaneDavidson Founder, Farsight Media @sloane
  • 2. Is women’s philanthropy on the path to a successful future?
  • 3. What You Said There’s a lack of collaboration or sharing best practices; [women’s philanthropy] still seems small and fragmented More big companies are thinking about investments in women as a strategy for business success. Hopefully this will continue a trend towards BOLDness. The problem? Silo'ing, lack of meaningful partnerships, duplicating efforts/wasting resources. There’s still too much duplication. The same voices are being given the stage at the major/key events. We need programs that are about outcomes, not just about the branding and marketing.
  • 4. YES. If… ● We embrace strategic collaboration ● We tell data-driven stories ● We harness fearlessness ● We leverage our assets as women leaders
  • 5. NO. If… ● We look at each other as competition ● We stay in silos ● We lack confidence ● We maintain status quos ● We don’t ask for concrete returns on our investments
  • 6. COLLABORATION Success in philanthropy lies in the ability to co-create effective strategies. WOMEN’S WORLD BANKING: GLOBAL NETWORK DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CENTER & BELLFLOWER CENTER FOR PREVENTION OF CHILD ABUSE: MERGER KIVA & VITTANA: PARTNERSHIP BRIGHT PINK + NBA: NON-TRADITIONAL SPONSORSHIP
  • 7. DATA-DRIVEN STORYTELLING Compelling data + poignant storytelling = the single most effective way to reach people.
