About Our Grantmaking

About Our Pilot Fighter League Program

These initial Fighter League grants are the first step in our effort to support a “Fighter League” of female leaders who are tackling climate change and promoting a Just Transition to 100% clean energy for all.

This program reflects our 100% Commitment to Justice, which focuses resources on organizations led by women of color. It also reflects our philosophy that feminine leadership – which is characterized by inclusive collaboration and bottom-up decision making, rather than competition and top-down decision-making – is required to solve the climate crisis.

These women co-created our leadership development program, with a particular focus on the practices and skills to advance collaboration in a time of mounting crisis, consistent with feminine leadership principles.
