Figures released from US SIF this week show “gender lens” criteria were applied to $868 billion in US money manager assets, more than double the $397 billion identified in 2016. Additionally this week, Wharton and Project Sage 2.0 identified 87 private gender-lens funds, up from 58 in the previous year, that have now raised $2.25 billion and backed 828 companies. It’s clear gender lens investing is on the rise. But what is it? Where did it come from? What’s driving this growth? And how do you do it? We explore the world of gender lens investing with the support of our Tribe Fellow, Suzanne Biegel, in this thought provoking and helpful how-to.
