Time’s Up and The Women’s Fund of Western Massachusetts

May 1, 2018

Ode is hosting its second annual Auction for Action on May 11-13, a silent art auction featuring a curated collection of art, jewelry, and clothing. Inspired by the rising tide of women speaking out and for each other, Ode will be donating all the proceeds from this year's Auction for Action to Time's Up and The Women's Fund of Western Massachusetts.  Join us in supporting these incredible organizations on May 11-13, by bidding in-store or on our Instagram page, or attending our aunch party on Friday, May 11, 6-8pm.

The Women’s Fund of Western Massachusetts fuels progress toward gender equity by funding the most promising solutions, collaborating with results-oriented partners, and by elevating the collective power of local women to take charge, and to lead with purpose. 

Since 1997, Women’s Fund has awarded over $2.5 million to more than 150 nonprofit organizations helping to build long-term, sustainable, change through:
Leadership Development – 250+ women trained to lead communities in public, private and policy leadership roles through our Leadership Institute for Political and Public Impact (LIPPI).
Local Investment – 3 million women and their families in Massachusetts are impacted through strategic partnerships and grant making.
Shared Vision – Over $2,500,000 has been invested by donors.

Powered by women, Time's Up addresses the systemic inequality and injustice in the workplace that have
kept underrepresented groups from reaching their  full potential. They partner with leading advocates for  equality and safety to improve laws, employment  agreements, and corporate policies; help change the  face of corporate boardrooms and the C-suite; and enable more women and men to access our legal system to hold wrongdoers accountable. Time's up wants all victims and survivors to be able to access justice and support for the wrongdoingtheyhave endured.  By lifting up the voices, power, and strength of women working in low-wage industries, Time's Up hopes to help put an end to the lack of financial stability that makes women vunerable to high rates of gender-based violence and exploitation in the workplace.
