  • Featured Guests: Fenya Fischler and Tenzin Dolker


Hear from Association for Women’s Rights in Development (AWID)'s Fenya Fischler and Tenzin Dolker on:

  • Current trends in the feminist funder space, and how projects should research and apply for funding.
  • Provide examples of autonomous resourcing, helping individuals brainstorm ideas that may work for them.
  • Funding modalities. Specifically, how funding happens, and how it could better serve movements.

You don't want to miss this Glitter Meetup! Last year has shown that in order to be sustainable, we as digital rights defenders have to think outside of the box. AWID has years of experience doing so, and their wisdom and guidance will be an incredible gift this upcoming GM!
