Individually we all want to make an impact.... how can we accelerate and scale impact if we join forces with other organizations who share our same vision.
That is the question we asked three years ago (2016). Through that question, five powerful global organizations committed to creating a world in which women experience equity came together to see what would be possible.... Collective Impact Partnership (CIP) was launched!
The Collective Impact Partnership (CIP) leverages the powerful work of World Pulse, Rise Up, How Women Lead (formally Global Women's Leadership Network), the Public Health Institute, and Global Fund for Women to increase the economic power of women and girls in India. With funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, CIP’s innovative approach builds women leaders’ advocacy, leadership, and digital capacities to advance economic empowerment and justice for women and girls in Maharashtra.
The project is working with a cohort of 20 India-based women leaders to advance their own initiatives through 2020.
The Collective’s advocacy and leadership development approach will enable women leaders to:
- advance public policies that enhance economic empowerment for women;
- improve implementation of existing legislation to enhance economic justice and empowerment;
- increase resource allocation to support women’s economic empowerment programs;
- and create a safe, curated online space for Indian women and girls to connect and raise awareness among allies and influencers on economic justice and empowerment, campaigns, and policies.
