  Pathways to Progress

Pathways to Progress for the Women & Girls of Western New York is a comprehensive analysis of the conditions confronting women and girls in our region, a bluepront for impactful investment and action and the momentous step forward in addressing the roadblocks and barriers still faced by women and girls today, even in the 21st century.  Pathways to Progress is an initiative of the WNY Women's Fund.  The University at Buffalo Regional Institute was commissioned to administer the research project and additional financial support was provided by eight WNY foundations and organizations.


We believe women and girls are the key to stronger, economically self sufficient families.  With your help, we can transform the WNY community.

Join the WNY Women's Fund as we chart the Pathways to Progress for women and girls in Western New York.  This is the first step to making meaningful and measurable differences in the status of women and girls in WNY.
