Kavita Ramdas
Investing in Women: A Strategy That Yields High ReturnsFor the last 9 years, Kavita N. Ramdas has led the Global Fund for Women, the world's largest grantmaking foundation exclusively devoted to advancing women's rights. During her tenure, the Global Fund has increased grantmaking six-fold, having grown the amount given annually from $1.5 million to 7.4 million. Ms. Ramdas has achieved this by raising money in a way that honors all donors and acknowledges that all of us can be philanthropists, no matter the size of our income. She will share inspiring examples of how women-led organizations in 162 countries are using these funds to address HIV/AIDS, violence, and poverty in order to transform their communities.moreless
