WHAT WE’RE EXCITED ABOUT
When we know where we stand, we can find the way forward. The Women’s Foundation of Arkansas understands the diverse needs and realities facing women and girls in Arkansas, and they respond through purposeful action and engaged philanthropy. In collaboration with students at the Clinton School of Public Service, they created the Gender Equity Scorecard, an exciting new tool organizations in Arkansas can use to better understand themselves, where they fall on the spectrum of workplace equity practices, and how to create better working environments for all employees.
WHY THIS EXCITES US
The Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation (WRF) relentlessly pursues social, ethnic, and racial equity. The Women’s Foundation of Arkansas is addressing historic injustices and disrupting systems that perpetuate inequity. Workplace equity won’t diminish the role or opportunity of some, it will increase the productivity and commitment of all.
WHAT WE KNOW
Governor Rockefeller's vision of equity for all Arkansans requires that we no longer accept inequity in any sector. His legacy is our inspiration as we set out to co-create an Arkansas where all will achieve widely shared prosperity. We believe everyone should be able to earn a living wage, participate in a thriving economy, and build generational wealth. Together we will eliminate policies and practices that perpetuate gender bias and dismantle barriers that create gender inequity.
