    The Women's Fund of Central Ohio, 2323 West Fifth Ave., Suite 230, Columbus Ohio 43204

    We spark change through original data and research.

    As a leader in research focused on women and girls, The Women’s Fund created a series of short research briefings called Spark Reports. These reports tell the stories of the issues impacting women and girls and bring data to life to spark conversation, inform our work, and support the efforts of community leaders, grant partners and central Ohio organizations to mobilize action—creating lasting social change.

    At this Coffee & Conversation, grab a cup of coffee and learn about the wage gap here in central Ohio, the importance of looking at the wage gap through an intersectional lens, and how we can all play active roles in igniting change.

    *Facilitated by: Sundeepti Jindal, Community Education and Research Manager at The Women’s Fund of Central Ohio.

    Join us on October 4 to hear real stories from local activists and nationally recognized Cleo Wade, artist, poet and best-selling author of “Heart Talk: Poetic Wisdom for a Better Life.” Cleo will share her story of becoming an activist and agitator while preaching love, acceptance, justice, peace, and equality for all.

    Named one of America’s 50 Most Influential Women by Marie Claire and dubbed the ‘Millennial Oprah’ by New York Magazine, Cleo is a fierce advocate for love and acceptance in a time when both seem in short supply. Cleo’s work speaks to the importance of self-care, beloved community building and social justice, and she embodies everything YWCA Columbus represents.
