Investing in a Women’s Right to Choose
Resilience is defined by a diversity of choices, and a woman’s right to choose her own reproductive path is crucial to her resilience. Through its grantmaking, The Educational Foundation of America has long supported a woman’s ability to control her own reproductive health by ensuring access to safe, legal abortion and contraception. Investors and foundations are exploring using a suite of financial tools to support this access, including: impact investing through a pooled fund that provides low interest loans to abortion clinics; shareholder activism to ensure that companies cover reproductive health services for their employees; and refinancing debt and extending lines of credit. During this panel, hear from experts in investing through a gender lens; they invite you to think more broadly about the impact that your investments can have in the world.
Suzanne Biegel is an in-demand speaker and moderator on all things gender-smart investing, who has been featured at The Equality Lounge at the World Economic Forum, Women Deliver, SoCap, The GIIN Forum, and more.

- The gender-smart investing landscape;
- The current state of the field, and where it’s going next;
- How gender-smart investing can drive systemic change;
- How you can use venture capital, supply chain financing, and other tools to deploy your capital with a gender lens.
