043 - Female Economic Empowerment with Women’s Foundation of Boston Boston's Best

    • Marketing

When starting a business, no matter the industry, it’s important to recognize how you can meet a need, fill in a gap, and/or fulfill a demand. My guest this week is able to meet the needs of her community, fill in a gap for Non-Profit organizations, and fulfill a demand to help women and girls find financial freedom in the Greater Boston area.

This week, I am talking with Christina Gordon, CEO at Women’s Foundation of Boston. Women’s Foundation of Boston “is a registered 501(c)(3) that economically empowers Greater Boston women and girls through funding high impact leadership and economic programs in partnership with nonprofits serving solely women and girls”.

In this episode, Christina shares how the Women’s Foundation of Boston helps women and girls feel empowered through their careers and finances, as well as leadership and education opportunities. Although Covid-19 took a toll on many businesses and communities, the Women's Foundation of Boston was able to raise over half a million dollars and give back to over 6,000 women and girls through the Global Pandemic.

Topics Discussed:


The importance of filling a gap in business and nonprofit

Why Intentionality should be the driving force behind creating an impact

Defining “Mission Creep” in NonProfit Organizations

Understanding Market Research through database research

Creating a roadmap for Sustainability

How Covid-19 created space for Nonprofits to flourish
