VisionForward is represented in every region across the country through Advocates, individual leaders who are committed to the advancement of gender equity and who use their spheres of influence to amplify VisionForward.

Advocates are united by VisionForward’s two pillars of action: valuing caregiving and civic participation. They act to accelerate the pace of gender equity in their own local communities and regions by collaborating with other Advocates and Allied Organizations, hosting regional events and speaking engagements, participating in media opportunities and on social media, and collaborating with other leaders in their communities, as well as a variety of other projects.

VisionForward has formed alliances with national and regional nonprofit and professional organizations whose missions and values align closely with ours. Through the support and collaboration of our trusted Allied Organizations (Allies), VisionForward is able to better achieve collective impact as we advance our work toward gender equity.

Proud Partners range from nonprofits and cultural institutions to small businesses and larger organizations, all of which show their support for the advancement of gender equity through relevant initiatives (i.e., exhibitions, themed programming, performances, etc.). Proud Partners typically do not have missions that are specifically focused on gender equity but are eager to support the movement.

Nonprofit organizations that are nonpartisan and have missions that align with VisionForward’s work should consider applying to become VisionForward Allied Organizations.
