As International Women’s Day approaches on March 8, I thought it would be a good time to take a step back and look at RENEW’s scorecard as it relates to gender equality. While we aren’t perfect, gender equality and gender-smart policies are something we genuinely aim for. Here’s how that currently stacks up.

  • 55% of the SMEs currently in the IAN's portfolio have female shareholders.
  • 60% of the jobs provided across our portfolio are held by women.
  • 43% of participants in The Exec’s Program are women.
  • 36% of the professionals in the CFO100 are women.
  • 43 or 28% of the Impact Angel Network members are women. We want to have more women join the IAN.
  • And finally, 47% of RENEW’s professional team are women.

To read real-life perspectives from some of these key stakeholder groups referenced above, check out the following blogs:
