New Gender Lens Investing Tool Helps Drive Capital to Mutual Funds Supporting Gender Equality

As You Sow is gearing up to release its fifth Invest Your Values screening tool, Gender Equality Funds

Oakland, California — Nov. 13 2018 — As You Sow is gearing up to release its fifth Invest Your Values screening tool, Gender Equality Funds, on Nov. 13. Gender Equality Funds is a free, online tool that enables individual and institutional investors to apply a gender lens to mutual fund and ETF investments.

Gender Equality Funds screens the specific holdings of about 5,000 of the most commonly-held U.S. mutual funds—including financial giants like Vanguard, BlackRock, and State Street—against a database detailing individual company performance on 12 key gender equality performance indicators. These 12 indicators measure policies that demonstrate a commitment to gender diversity and gender balance in the overall leadership, management, and workforce of companies, combining into an overall gender equality portfolio score for each mutual fund.
