We are transforming K-12 education so that every student graduates high school with the skills & knowledge to close the gender leadership gap.
We give teachers entire curricula and supplemental resources that explore and celebrate the experiences of women & encourage critical thought. Our programs urge students to embrace gender equity as a fundamental tenet of a thriving society.
We train educators to use practices that foster success in every student, regardless of gender. Our empowering practices limit unconscious bias, stereotype threat and discrimination.
We work with K-12 educators to cultivate anti-bias environments that foster critical thinking, empathy and positive self-esteem.
A note from our founder: What makes TaW special?
Teach About Women is built around the idea that education is the key to building a better future. And that teachers, what they do, how they do it, the environments and relationships they cultivate, are the fastest and best way to make an impact on young people. That's why my first step as the founder and director was to build a team of remarkable and dedicated educators. They are what makes Teach About Women great and it is my honor to work with them.
Teach About Women is a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating young people to champion gender equity in their personal lives, communities and workplaces. We believe that education is the key to closing the gender leadership gap and that by providing K-12 schools with curriculum, training and certification to make equity, especially gender equity, part of every aspect of school life that we can build a world where everyone has the same opportunities to learn, thrive and lead, regardless of gender.
Coming from an education background, I am proud to note what distinguishes our nonprofit organization as a strong business.
- We build bridges between schools and the real world to ensure students are getting the skills they need for success after school.
- We pay teachers fairly and equitably for our work. Everyone knows what they will be paid before a project and what everyone else is being paid too. As much as possible, we compensate everyone on a project with the same dollar amount.
- Our inclusive, flexible approach engages any school or teacher who wants to move forward along the path to making gender equity part of every aspect of school life– no matter where they are right now.
- We emphasize a comprehensive, intersectional approach to equity. We never sideline issues of race, class, sexuality or other identity factors in our work to empower girls and women. In fact, we believe that ‘women’ should be defined broadly, welcoming those who identify as femme, trans, non-binary, and gender expansive.
- We take a careful, business-oriented approach to growth where we are focusing early on fundraising to become sustainable on revenue as quickly as possible.
