Criterion Institute’s President, Joy Anderson, and Katherine Miles authored the State of the Field of Gender Lens Investing report documenting a comprehensive history of the field and strategies for the road ahead. The report, published in October 2015, narrates the history of Gender Lens Investing, offers several strategic road maps for the future, and names in the bibliography many organizations that are doing this work.

A generous grant from the Wallace Global Fund allowed Criterion to research, publish, and amplify this report through a Summit in Washington, D.C. in April 2016. For questions or comments, please reach out to us at

Here are a few articles that have been written about the report’s impact:
