Naming your commitment. Leadership support allows a foundation to free up internal capacities and creativity and to publicise its interest in gender and in investing in women and girls to potential allies and partners. Some foundations explicitly name their commitment in the form of a policy statement on funding for inclusion – with women and girls in the equation. This can be valuable, even where gender-inclusive funding is quite well integrated in a foundation. Such an explicit, public statement of commitment does not need to be long and complex – it can be rather short and simple.
