Launching the Women’s Index
On May 3, CHIP launched the Women’s Index: Developing a Tool for Aligning Financial Investments with Gender Equity. This report was created in partnership between CHIP and Women of the World Endowment (WoWE), the first 100% mission aligned endowment investing in women.
Ruth Shaber (Tara Health Foundation) and Tea Trumbic (World Bank) joined Kat Rosqueta (CHIP) and Maria Skuratovskaya (WoWE) to discuss the research, the need, and implications of an index to score sovereign debt investments according to support for the five dimensions of women’s lives.
The XX Factor Guidebook: How to Align Financial Investments to Improve the Lives of Women & Girls utilizes CHIP’s five-dimensional framework to help funders align their investment portfolios with improving the lives of women and girls. Find case studies and tools to make your capital work for your mission.
The XX Factor identified five dimensions foundational for the lives of women and girls: health, education, economic empowerment, personal safety, and legal rights. For the Women’s Index, CHIP in collaboration with Women of the World Endowment conducted research and analysis of social impact indicators available to inform investment with a gender focus within the sovereign debt space.
