2021 First Quarter Impact
The first few months of 2021 have been shaped by a rapid succession of highs and lows.
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.
The Women’s Foundation of California is a statewide, publicly supported foundation dedicated to achieving racial, economic, and gender justice by centering the experience and expertise of communities most impacted by systemic injustice.
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.
