✨ Introducing The Solís Policy Institute ✨
We’re celebrating the launch of our newly-renamed Dr. Beatriz María Solís Policy Institute.
Dr. Beatriz María Solís’ deep commitment to women and girls of color and gender expansive folks during her too-brief life is powerfully reflected in the policy advocacy program that now bears her name.
We continue to metabolize the deep pains of racial injustice and pandemic inequality alongside our great hopes for what we can accomplish when we acknowledge our interdependence.
We want to reflect back on the first quarter of the year and share what our Women’s Foundation California community is building together.
Gender is expansive and so is our community.
At Women’s Foundation California, our name reflects our history but not our present. Across all of our work, we strive towards greater gender-inclusiveness and continue to learn and evolve as an organization.
Our grantmaking program is driven by our intersectional approach to racial, gender, and economic justice. We prioritize funding to organizations led by frontline leaders who reflect the communities they champion.
For more than 15 years we have trained a powerhouse network of advocates who are changing the policy landscape of California. Our Women’s Policy Institute and Funders Policy Institute build the confidence, know-how, and network to change the game.
As a publicly-funded foundation, we know that together we can do more. With our events, trainings, and conveenings, we bring together organizers, policy movers, grantmakers, and power builders from across the state to spark new connections, strengthen networks, and build community.
