Oxford Initiative for Inspiring Entrepreneurial Diversity (OXIFIED) aims to catalyse racial and gender equity, diversity and inclusion in the Oxford social entrepreneurship ecosystem through education, public engagement and research. During the 2021-22 academic year, we will be working with partners across the Oxford ecosystem to share best practice for building equitable, diverse and inclusive ventures.

Join us for a fireside chat about catalysing equity, diversity and inclusion in the social entrepreneurship ecosystem. In this special two-part miniseries for International Women’s Day, Skoll Centre Visiting Fellow Tara Sabre Collier will speak to Jeannette Gurung about innovations for gender lens investment. Come learn about the first monetized and tradeable gender impact credit, which is revolutionising the impact ecosystem the way carbon trading revolutionized green finance. The founder will explain the methodology, uptake, and implications for DEI in the impact ecosystem.

Jeanette Gurung has been an innovator at the nexus of gender equality and climate-related sectors for three decades, working with both public and private organizations and projects. She is founder and Executive Director of WOCAN (WOCAN http://wocan.org), a global network with over 1400 members in 114 countries, to support capacity building for women’s leadership and empowerment and gender integration. She created the W+ Standard ™ (http://wplus.org) to measure, quantify and monetize impacts of projects and supply chains on women’s empowerment, through the use of a results-based financing approach. Jeannette co-founded the Women and Climate Impact Fund (http://wcifund.org) to mobilize blended financial investments in climate mitigation and adaptation projects that incorporate high levels of gender equality and women’s empowerment, using the W+ Standard to assure quality impacts. She is a member of the Gender and Climate Investment Working Group of the Gender Smart Investing Summit.

Jeannette has a MSc in forestry from the University of Washington, and a PhD in Gender and Development from the University of East Anglia. She has expertise in certification and standards, monitoring and evaluation, training, research, gender and organizational analysis, policy advocacy and network building.

Tara Sabre Collier is a Visiting Fellow at the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship, impact investor, and strategic advisor to impact funds and development finance institutions.
