This report is the third commissioned by the Women’s Fund of Western Massachusetts,
following the status reports completed in 2013 and 2019. Its purpose is to:
- Shed light on strengths, progress, and areas of continued or emerging gender inequity in our four-county region of Berkshire, Franklin, Hampden, and Hampshire counties.
- Inform the foundation’s strategic planning and grantmaking for the next several years.
- Provide actionable data and insights for our current partners, and to motivate others to pursue gender and racial equity.
- Support collective advocacy by using findings to engage stakeholders, community-based organizations, for-profit companies, other funders, government, higher education, and other agencies in advancing gender-equitable policies and practices.
