In this continued season of uncertainty, there is much to celebrate. Whether we’re welcoming a new class of SPI fellows, reflecting on the impact of our words, or moving money to support voter education around the recall, the span and scope of what our Women’s Foundation California community has accomplished in just the last few months is significant.
The Women’s Foundation of California financial statements have been independently audited by the accounting firm of Crowe Horwath LLP and received an unqualified audit opinion as to their fair presentation in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles.
Women’s Foundation California is committed to a socially responsible investment strategy that aligns our investment portfolio with our organizational values of an inclusive and sustainable economy. We hold the belief, and data support, that investing in companies that do the right thing with regard to women’s leadership and compensation practices outperform their competitors.
WFC endeavors to invest in companies that have the following characteristics:
- Women in leadership in Board and Management positions
- Policies and practices that advance gender equity including parental leave, flexible work schedule, and family leave.
- Products and services that benefit women
- Have an articulated racial, economic, gender, and environmental justice commitment.
