Introducing WomenForward

WomenForward is a network for change, a coalition of organizations empowering girls and women around the world through inspired investment, amplified voices, and collective action.

A part of The PIMCO Foundation's grantmaking and employee engagement programs, the WomenForward coalition is a diverse group of organizations working with women and girls across the globe. With PIMCO's support, the 18 partners are tackling challenges faced by women and girls from New York to Rwanda through innovative educational, entrepreneurial, and health-focused opportunities.

We know that achieving true gender equality requires an enhanced global partnership that brings together governments, civil society, the private sector, the United Nations system and other actors. And so that’s why we’re teaming up to make a collaborative impact.

Our WomenForward change-making partners are:

Acumen Plan International USA
BUILD NYC Rising Tide Capital
Callisto SHE-CAN
Figure Skating in Harlem Sustainable Health Enterprises (SHE)
Girls Write Now Thistle Farms
Global AIDS Interfaith Alliance (GAIA) Trickle Up
Hot Bread Kitchen Women for Women International
International Women’s Health Coalition Women’s Refugee Commission
Mercado Global Women’s World Banking

In addition to our philanthropic focus on gender equality, Inclusion and Diversity is a top priority for PIMCO. It’s not only a fundamental core value of the firm, but it’s integrated into how we do business. Through our Inclusion, Diversity & Culture efforts, we seek to create a collaborative, progressive environment in our workplace – one where we can facilitate greater self-awareness and perspective on our behaviors and beliefs as well as those of our colleagues, clients and community.

Via our PIMCO Women employee resource group, one of several ERGs at PIMCO, we advance a meritocratic, gender and cognitively diverse culture by partnering with colleagues and business units to help recruit, retain and develop women at all stages in their careers – all for the benefit of our clients, our business and our employees.

Both The PIMCO Foundation and PIMCO Women are proud to support the WomenForward campaign and change the possible for women and girls the world over.
