Gender Innovation Finance and Investing

We are working to increase levels of gender equality innovation finance and investment.

A key focus of our work is increasing “Gender Lens Investing” (GLI). GLI encourages the use of capital to advance gender inequality by investing in one ore more of the following: women led ventures, ventures that advance gender equality within their organisational practice and supply chains, or ventures that directly address gender inequality via their products or services.

Our initial research has identified that within the UK social finance sector, understanding, and thus levels of, GLI are low. We are working with a number of partners to identify best practice in, and promote greater application of investing gender equality.
