Women effect investing, or gender lens investing, is about learning to see gender in your portfolio as a way of maximising financial and social returns.
We are tracking and sharing the ways in which gender lens investing is emerging as a standard way to view an investment or a portfolio.
This is a new field and it’s evolving; a complete set of tools and approaches for this work has not yet been developed. However, we've put together a 101 starter kit of research, papers and primers for anyone who wants to learn more.
the women effect story
Women Effect started as a pilot initiative in 2015/2016. The information hub we created is no longer being updated.
Regularly meeting at events helps those moving their capital with a gender lens to accelerate ideas into action. We stopped updating the calendar in late 2016.
