Kathleen’s webinar demonstrates how philanthropy is fundamentally based on assumptions about how men prefer to be engaged. Yet, women’s economic power is rising, and they are now influential in philanthropy. Drawing on unparalleled research and expertise, Kathleen shows that for any nonprofit, engaging women should be paramount, and she shares best practices for doing so in a meaningful and sustainable way.
