Gender-wise Investing: A Springboard for Australia’s Recovery

by Angela Jackson; Leonora Risse

Apr 13, 2021

Australia faced unprecedented challenges throughout 2020, starting with bushfires that ravaged communities across Australia, only to then be dominated by the first global pandemic in 100 years.

As the recovery commenced, Australians Investing in Women (AIIW) commissioned this research to provide funders with analysis and distillation of existing research into the impacts of recent disasters on women. The purpose is to highlight key issues, and identify funding hotspots, where private and corporate giving can be targeted to help accelerate Australia's economic and social recovery through a focus on women's economic security, safety and wellbeing.
