#NextGenDonors: Respecting Legacy, Revolutionizing PhilanthropyPhilanthropy

2013
Michael Moody, Shama Goldseker

The next generations of major philanthropists, who fit into “Gen X” (born 1964-1980) or “Gen Y/Millennial” (born 1981-2000) generational cohorts, will wield more philanthropic power than any previous generation. With an unprecedented amount of wealth, these donors hold the future of philanthropy in their hands, yet, until now, there has been little previous research on the powerful but very private group of young people who stand to become the major donors of the future Conducted in 2012, this report is based on first-of-its kind data, listening to members of the next generations of major donors, ages 21 to 40, in their own voices. A national online survey (310 total responses) and in-depth interviews (30 total) have revealed four key findings.

2009-2010 FundHer Research Update: Trends in Bilateral and Multilateral FundingPhilanthropy

2010
Lydia Alpízar, Cindy Clark, Alexandra Pittman, Sarah Rosenhek, Verónica Vidal

Trends in Bilateral and Multilateral Funding is part of the 2009-2010 FundHer Research Update brief series, produced by AWID’s “Where is the Money for Women’s Rights” Action-Research Initiative. The purpose of the series is to provide up to date information on important trends in different funding sectors, including preliminary data on the impact of the financial crisis and economic recession and to explore the implications for resource mobilization for gender equality and women’s organizing. The research presented in this brief series draws on interviews held with relevant actors from various donor sectors, desk research and comparative analysis from past AWID surveys of women’s organizations regarding the funding landscape. This brief presents some key trends in funding for gender equality and for civil society organizations from bilateral and multilateral agencies, as well as a more detailed look at some of the donors and specific funds that are providing significant support for women’s organizing. It also looks at the current financial crisis and economic recession seems to be impacting ODA levels and donor priorities, and what this context means in terms of available resources for women’s organizations.

20 First: Global Gender Balance Scorecard: Where the world's top companies stand.

Business Employment & Leadership

2011

Every year, the 20-first Global Gender Balance Scorecard looks at a single measure of progress: the gender balance of the Executive Committee of the TOP 100 companies in three key regions of the globe. A growing number of studies, from McKinsey, Catalyst and a range of universities show the correlation between gender balance in leadership and improved corporate performance. The complementary skills and styles of men and women have a positive impact on business. Not surprising, when most of the educated talent in the world and a majority of the consumer market is female. Today, more and more companies are waking up to this 21st century reality and have begun to make gender balance in leadership a strategy priority. Let’s take a look at what the top companies around the world have achieved to date.

2010 Board of Directors Survey

Corporate Boards

2010

Women directors appear to be more assertive on a number of hot-button issues, including evaluating their own board’s performance and supporting more oversight on boards. This changing dynamic will likely usher in a new era of governance and perhaps more significant changes for US companies and their boards over the next several years.

2010 Board of Directors Survey

Corporate Boards

2010

The growing number of women taking a seat in the corporate boardroom has prompted an increased interest in how these directors approach board service versus their male peers. In the wake of the financial crisis, with widespread discussion about board accountability, it is especially important to ask how male and female directors diverge in their approach to the boardroom. How do both genders feel trust in boards can be restored? How do men and women differ – and agree – when rating their boards’ effectiveness in handling fundamental board responsibilities? Do either men or women directors believe that quotas are necessary for creating a more diverse boardroom?

2011 Catalyst Census: Financial Post 500 Women Board Directors

Corporate Boards

2012

The 2011 Catalyst Census: Financial Post 500 Women Board Directors details women’s representation on corporate boards at the largest companies in Canada.

  • Women’s share of all board seats.
  • Women’s share of board leadership positions at public companies.
  • Women’s share of board seats at public, private, Crown, and cooperative companies.
  • All companies with 0 percent, 25 percent or more, and 40 percent or more women directors.

The appendices provide additional points of comparison by region and industry as well as list companies with the highest and lowest representation of women board directors.

2011 UC Davis Study of California Women Business Leaders: A Census of Women Directors and Executive Officers

Corporate Boards

2011

Our seventh annual study details the presence of women at the very top of the 400 largest publicly held corporations headquartered in the state. Our findings paint a disappointing picture of female representation on the boards and in the executive suites of these high-profile companies, which together represent nearly $3 trillion in shareholder value.

Women still hold fewer than one in 10 of the highest-paid executive positions and board seats at the top public firms in California — a rate that has improved by just 0.2 percent annually.

2011 Women on Boards Report

Corporate Boards

2011 March 8

In its 2011 Women on Boards Report, GovernanceMetrics International, the leading independent global corporate governance and ESG research firm, shows that 40 percent of the world’s largest publicly listed companies have not appointed even one woman to their boards. Even in major markets like Japan, Italy, the United Kingdom, and the United States women continue to be grossly under-represented on corporate boards. Not surprisingly, the issue of board diversity is generating a healthy level of public debate.

A Study Finds More MBAs Take the 'Mommy Track'

Business Employment & Leadership

2008

A surprising number of highly-educated MBAs are dropping out of the labor force. Associate Professor Catherine Wolfram, a member of the Haas Economic Analysis and Policy Group found MBAs are more likely than MDs and JDs to be stay-at-home mothers. Wolfram hypothesizes that JDs and MDs have more flexible career paths than MBAs. Wolfram's study is titled "Opt-Out Patterns Across Careers: Labor Force Participation Rates Among Highly Educated Mothers"

Advancing Women Leaders: The Connection Between Women Board Directors and Women Corporate Officers

Corporate Boards

2008

This research shows that the number of women on a company’s board of directors impacts the future of women in its senior leadership. This is significant because earlier Catalyst findings show that Fortune 500 companies with the highest representation of women board directors and women corporate officers, on average, achieve higher financial performance than those with the lowest. The numbers tell the story—a gender-diverse board promotes continued success for women and for business. Women board directors appear to have a greater effect on increasing the percentage of line positions held by women than they do on staff positions held by women.

Which gender supplies better leaders for organizations? Based on research conducted by Zenger Folkman, the authority in strengths-based leadership development, the answer is rather clear and quite shocking. As far as the 16 researched differentiating leadership competencies are concerned women excelled in a majority of areas.
