Vision 2020 and VisionForward Coalition Members


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

Advocates were united by VisionForward’s two pillars of action: valuing caregiving and civic participation. They acted 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 formed alliances with national and regional nonprofit and professional organizations whose missions and values were closely aligned with the organization. Through the support and collaboration of trusted Allied Organizations, VisionForward was able to better achieve collective impact as they advanced the work toward gender equity.

Proud Partners ranged from nonprofits and cultural institutions to small businesses and larger organizations, all of which showed their support for the advancement of gender equity through relevant initiatives (i.e., exhibitions, themed programming, performances, etc.). Proud Partners typically did not have missions that were specifically focused on gender equity but were eager to support the movement. Note: Proud Partners were originally developed as part of Women 100: A National Celebration of American Women.
