This on demand audio series is a part of the Executive Girlfriends Group Vignette Series. Chicke Fitzgerald interviews Sondra Shaw Hardy & Martha Taylor. The original live interview was 12/14/12.
It surely began with Adam and Eve: two distinct genders behaving in very different ways. Two separate ways of giving. Women have always given of course, but today they are giving their money as well as their time.
Why? Because not only are women throwing off the old stereotypes of women and philanthropy, they are taking control of their finances—their lives–and acting independently. Women in the media have championed these changes.
The outcomes of the women’s philanthropy movement are enormous. Research will continue to institutionalize the movement. The ways women give will become the norm for all philanthropy. Best of all, women will see to it that their gifts will make the world a better place.
Sondra Shaw-Hardy, J.D., was described by Town and Country magazine as “the pioneer” in women’s philanthropy.
As a vice president of the University of Wisconsin Foundation, Martha A. Taylor has been a key player in the growth of one of the most successful institutionally related foundations.
