U.S. Trust is firmly committed to the continuing empowerment of women and girls worldwide.
As a reflection of this commitment, we recently expanded ustrust.com/women, our online resource for some of the best thinking on women and girls as an economic, cultural and philanthropic force.
Part of this expansion includes a new page, ustrust.com/focusonwomen, dedicated to web broadcasts that cover areas that are important to women. Among these webcasts, “The Power of a Gender Lens” highlights how women in leadership roles can help accelerate social change and improve economic growth. Leaders in several prominent women’s organizations discuss the importance of women and charitable activities in “Women and Philanthropy: Influential, Independent and Generous.” A third webcast, “Socially Innovative Investing,” focuses on investing in line with one’s social values, an investment approach whose appeal is growing among women.
As always, ustrust.com/women features other content focused on women. A study, “High-Impact Giving to Women and Girls,” and an article, “Women and Philanthropy: The Secret to Social Change,” explore research indicating that the most effective ways to change the world may well be through investments related to women and girls. “Life Transitions: Preparing for the Unexpected” addresses planning for significant life changes such as retirement, divorce and the death of a spouse — events many women are unprepared for.
