Culture Change Fund - Women's Foundation California
What We Do

It’s time to address how our nation understands gender. Leveraging culture shift strategies, we can change the conversation (and the policy) on everything from closing the women’s wealth gap to workplace harassment.

Our Theory of Change

Using culture change strategies, we’re accelerating a new way of thinking that centers gender, racial, and economic justice at the heart of the solution to any systemic problem.


Our first research project – Story at Scale – is a data-driven narrative research project designed for practical use by advocates, artists, and campaigners in all of their communications and organizing efforts.


A learning space where funders, activists, artists, and researchers working at the intersection of gender justice and social change work to share information and contribute to a living library of ongoing resources.


To give organizations and campaigns the opportunity to explore and build on culture change strategies, we provide direct grants.

All Bodies Deserve

Each drawing in All Bodies Deserve: Creating the Future of Us centers joy and diverse communities and is inspired by the ideas of abundance – that we should all have what we need to thrive; that people can be different and still equally valued; that we need to care for ourselves, our communities, and the world; and that we can raise curious, happy, healthy identities and families.

We’re chatting with all of the artists who contributed to the coloring book. Read our interviews with:

Moderated by Favianna Rodriguez from the Center for Cultural Power, this panel is part of our Culture Change Fund work and featured Bia Vieira, Marya Bangee at Harness, and Anasa Troutman from The Big We.


The Big We

In collaboration with The Big WeCulture Shift 101 is a series of Learning Exchanges built to share and practice the frameworks, language, and tools of Cultural Strategy. Culture Shift 101 brings together diverse yet like-minded communities to explore, create, learn and commit to the power of art, culture, and creativity in re-imagining and manifesting a just and loving world.


The Culture Change Fund is guided by a powerful slate of intersectional gender and racial justice organizations led by and for people of color and communities: Center for Cultural Power, Harness, IllumiNative and The League.
