Global Fund for Women (GFW) is a grantmaker and global advocacy organization investing in women’s groups that advance the human rights of women and girls.


At GFW I led the design and production of IGNITE: Women Fueling Science and Technology, a nine-month multimedia storytelling project and global advocacy campaign that explored the roles of science and technology on advancing women’s human rights.
