Fourteen women from 14 different women's funds worldwide weighed in on the following two questions. Read their responses weekly.
1. What does it mean for an organization to be authentically global? For example, does an authentically global organization mean having multi-lingual staff? Where should it be headquartered?
2. How are you utilizing the power of networks by collaborating with government agencies, corporations, academia, religious institutions or other organizations outside of your sector? What are the advantages and the risks?
Like what you're reading? Let's continue the conversation! Join us in Brooklyn, New York for the 2011 Women's Funding Network Annual Conference: The Power of Global Networks.
Women's Funding Network connects more than 160 foundations that fund women's solutions across the globe.
