Support the 74% Movement Through Indiegogo

The  Women’s Institute for Policy and Research estimates it will take 44 years
for women’s pay to be equitable at the current rate of change.
The 74% cannot wait that long!

We hope to continue our research and publish a book that will include both
nonprofit scholars and practitioners.  We’ll hear from corporate leaders about
how they’ve progressed and reflect on lessons learned and opportunities missed.

Your contribution to our campaign is putting your money where your mouth needs to be. This is a campaign of hearts and minds and good data!

Help us be able to say with the poet Seamus Heaney:
History says, Don’t hope on this side of the grave.
But then, once in a lifetime, the longest-for tidal wave of justice can rise up
and hope and history rhyme.

Vote with your dollars.  Vote for the 74%.
Make hope and history rhyme!

Why 74%?

Women comprise a great majority of the nonprofit workforce in Southwestern Pennsylvania. In fact, 74% of those working in the regional nonprofit sector are female. Approximately 225,000 of the 300,000 employed in nonprofits in Allegheny and surrounding counties are women.

Wage equity, however, is not a reality for most women working in regional nonprofit organizations.

On behalf of women in the nonprofit workforce, The Bayer Center for Nonprofit Management at Robert Morris University is leading the way to promote change in this picture through research and education.

The Kitchen Cabinet has been formed to guide new research efforts on the lives of women in nonprofits, to ask hard and relevant questions, and to distill knowledge into action.  We intend to engage the power of 74% to do just that.

  1. I’m not sure how to find out exactly what 74% does. I am a female executive director of a non-profit here in Pittsburgh and am just your demographic. But do you do trainings? Is it a support group? An advisory panel? I don’t see much on your website about the “what” that you do. Thanks and I’m interested. Michelle Snyder (msnyder@ppi-online.org)
