Welcome to the homepage for Inspire Atlanta participants! Inspire Atlanta is a comprehensive initiative that is providing a unique leadership opportunity to a diverse group of professional women who are looking to ignite their passion for creating positive change for women in Atlanta.
As the only public foundation in Georgia dedicated solely to women and girls, it is our responsibility to prepare women to be thoughtful, well-informed, philanthropic leaders who understand the unique issues women and girls face locally. Through the Inspire Atlanta initiative, we are training women to develop or enhance the skills needed to empower and develop not only themselves, but their communities as well.
Less than 7% of foundation funding in the United States goes to women and girls. Social problems affect women and girls in unique ways—biologically, psychologically, and economically—so programs designed to deal with these problems must acknowledge, honor, and reflect these factors. As part of the program, participants are fundraising for the grant-making efforts of the Atlanta Women's Foundation. When you invest AWF, you invest in stronger, more stable families and communities.
Invest in women and girls, and you invest in a society that works—for everyone.
