Investing in Women

We believe that gender equality is a fundamental human right, yet the concerns and perspectives of girls and women everywhere are all too often overlooked or underrepresented.

Global Partners

PIMCO strives to make a measurable impact in our support of gender equality by directly investing in the economic empowerment of the most vulnerable women and girls.

Our commitment to advancing gender equality also extends to advocacy and awareness, where we support organizations that can influence hearts and minds through ongoing education and outreach.

Our partnership furthers the Pulitzer Center's reporting on gender equality issues, as well as its education outreach to schools across the United States.
